Fuch­sia ‘Genii’

NZ Gardener - - In Season -

This com­bi­na­tion of vi­o­let, cherry and gold is not for the faint-hearted. Fuch­sias are stal­wart shrubs of the sum­mer gar­den and no­table for their per­for­mance in shade, but this un­usual gold-leafed cul­ti­var needs strong light to get the best fo­liage colour. ‘Genii’ is hardy but it pays, in in­land ar­eas, to mulch the root zone with bark or fern fronds to keep the frost from the roots.
