Look Inside

Fuchsias are a popular choice for gardeners, with their striking and unmistakable nodding, and often bicoloured, flowers. There are approximately 100 species, mostly from temperate areas, and more than 15,000 hybrids and varieties. They vary from small trees to shrubs and cascading ground covering plants.

This book sets out to provide a broad overview of the genus “Fuchsia”, the species that man has taken from the wild, and a broad cross section of cultivars that have been developed from those species.

Whilst they seemed to lose some popularity towards the end of the twentieth century, these 19th century favourites are once again charming gardeners with their elegant two-tone flowers that can brighten up any garden.

For the fuchsia enthusiast, this ebook may help to develop a better perspective and fill in some elusive gaps in their understanding of the genus. For the amateur or beginner, it will provide a foundation upon which to build knowledge and understanding as they explore the possibilities of growing fuchsias in their own gardens.

With 124 pages of bursting colour, this ebook is a must read for anyone with an interest in fuchsias.
