Every couple of years, we make some standard fuchsias here at New Leaf Greenhouse. It takes about 9 months to make a nice standard, or tree fuchsia, and it’s lots of fun. We like to offer them in our retail store, and independent garden centers buy them. We don’t represent them as being suitable for planting in the ground here in the Northwest – they are a strictly a container plant that needs heat in the winter to live over, even if they are hardy varieties like June Bride. That’s the variety that is depicted in the image.
