Landscape Categories: Plants That Attract Hummingbirds
Comments: This uprigh variety has arching 2 foot long stems, covered with small, semi-double flowers with rose-pink tubes and sepals and white corollas. Where freezes occur in its area of hardiness, it should be cut back some in late fall and mulched heavily until warm weather returns. In spring remove mulch and prune out any dead or damaged branches. Drought, high humidity and high temperature are not well tolerated by this and other fuchsia. Hummingbirds like fuchsia nectar.
