Fuchsia magellanica Hedge Plants Description
Fuchsia magellanica is an attractive and hardy fuchsia variety that makes a beautiful ornamental hedge or specimen shrub. Dark-green foliage provides the perfect counterpoint to dainty pink and purple pendant-shaped flowers on long, elegant stems, which attract bees and other insects during the summer months. Fuchsia magellanica makes not only a beautiful hedge, but an eye-catching addition to flowerbeds and mixed borders.
Growing between 20-40cm per year, the upright growth habits of Fuchsia magellanica means that it can reach a height of up to 3m, although it can be hard-pruned after flowering to maintain it at a more manageable height of 1.5-2m. Hardy Fuchsia thrives particularly well in coastal locations, and can happily grow in any normal, moist soil types and in partial shade and sheltered areas.
Hedges Direct has a huge selection of flowering hedges available, perfect fr adding colour, interest and structure to your garden.
Fuchsia magellanica is good in all soils (other than wet) and mild situations other than dense shade. It is thought to be reasonably resistant to rabbits (although no guarantees!).

Fuchsia should be pruned in early to mid spring to cut back last years flowering stems. Ensure any weak or dead growth is also removed back to ground level to promote stronger new growth.
