Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

 

A beautiful, vigorous, deciduous fuchsia which is hardy in all but the coldest areas of the country, hardy to -10C (14F). This variety was bred in 1939 from original Brazilian species and names after the founder of the British Fuchsia Society, Lady Boothby.
Depending on the position it will grow from 1 to 3 metres (3ft to 9ft) high a year with a 50cm to 1.5m (20inch to 4.5ft) spread with an abundance of neat crimson flowers with deep purple centres from June until the first frosts in autumn. It can be grown as a climber, a free standing arching shrub, or clipped to form a hedge 1.2 to 2.5m (3 to 4ft) in height where is it needs to be planted 45cm (18inches) apart.
When grown against a wall or trellis it will need tying back. To encourage a long flowering period deadhead flowers regularly. Plant in sun or partial shade in a site sheltered from cold, drying winds. Provide a good mulch to the base of the stems in the winter, trim hedge regularly to keep to shape, or as a wall or free standing shrub, trim out any die back after winter and occasionally trim back some old stems to the ground in Spring to encourage new stems.
