What is a hardy fuchsia?

Posted by Sno-King Fuchsia Society on Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Hardies, as they are called in the fuchsia community, are fuchsias that can be grown in the ground.  There are hundreds of varieties that do very well here in the Pacific NW. 

They require only basic care; mulching around the base in the fall and pruning the dead wood back in the spring.  We do not recommend pruning hardies in the winter unless they are in a protected frost free area. When the plants are pruned, this leaves the soft opening in the branch where water can go down into the plant and freeze should we get a hard freeze. This will kill the plant.
