I have been told that there is an evergreen Fushia. If so does anyone know the name of it and when and where should it be planted?



If you look on page 3 (at this moment) Pottingmad has asked a very similar question, Hywel has given the answer

I think the nearest you can get to evergreen is Fuschia magellanica 'Riccartonii' which is the hardiest. In mild areas it will keep its leaves, unless there is a particularly severe winter. It likes any soil which retains some moisture and is best planted in mid-spring. It can grow to 6 ft.
By the way I bet you are not Useless!

Thank you Mad.
I can assure you that I am useless in the garden. But I keep trying.

Thank You Dido. I have read it and filed it.
