Description

Fuchsia procumbens, Creeping or Trailing Fuchsia is endemic to the North Island of New Zealand and is the most diminutive of the genus. A scrambling ground-covering plant it forms a low tangled mass of twigs and tiny leaves and in the spring and summer rewards with its exquisite gem-like flowers. The flowers have green sepals which fold back to reveal their black-tipped undersides which surround a golden-yellow flower with stunning blue/purple anthers perched on the ends of the yellow/orange filaments. It is unlike any other Fuchsia you may have grown.

Only half-hardy in the UK it is sensible to protect this beautiful and choice plant with fleece during the winter and certainly during any sustained periods of sub-zero temperatures. Beyond that its requirements are relatively simple: a moist humus-rich soil and partial shade.
