About FuchsiasFuchsias are nicknamed “lady's eardrops" because of their drooping blooms. Their bright, bicolored flowers give them an otherworldly or exotic appearance. Fuchsia plants are frost-tender perennials that grow in USDA hardiness zones 10 through 11, with a few varieties hardy down to USDA zone 6. In cooler climates, you can grow them as annuals. Their shrublike shape make them perfect for hanging baskets or containers and when grown as annuals they’re typically only 1 to 2 feet tall. Planted outside in frost-free areas, it grows into small to medium-sized shrub. The Fuchsia genus includes 122 species of fuchsia and a large number of hybrids.
