I live in the Vale of Clwyd, North wales, advice please on which Fuchsia to plant to make a hedge. One that is hardy!! Thanks Delia



Magellanica is the one usually used for hedging and it is pretty hardy. If the frost should ever knock it back it will grow up again from the base.

Riccartonii is another one. I live near Braemar in Scotland and it doesn't get much colder than that. That fuschia survives here, so it must be really hardy. It also makes a good hedge. It has red flowers with purple skirts.
