When I was in Seattle last week, several of my sisters were planting their fuschia hanging baskets. I love fuschias and have never found them down here in Texas. I have always assumed that the Central Texas climate was too unfriendly to fuschias.
I went to Home Depot this weekend to pick up a few things, and what did I spy on the racks of hanging baskets? One, lone, fuschia plant. The guy from the nursery was there stocking the shelves and said it should do ok if I keep it out of the really strong sun and shelter it later in the summer.
I scooped it up and brought it home. It now is hanging outside my back room so that I can keep an eye on it every day. So pretty!
