Fuchsia ‘Campo Thilco’
at Digging Dog

Fuchsia

According to a French missionary in the early 1700s, the Brazilian name for Fuchsias was Molle cantu, or Bush of Beauty. These plants offer graceful habits and pendulous, tubular flowers that are richly colored. The following mite resistant varieties appreciate ample moisture.

Fuchsia ‘Campo Thilco’ partial shade

Like dainty ballerinas, tubular crimson flowers abundantly dangle from branches cloaked in deep green comely leaves. Esteemed for its verdant bushy form, which grows with amazing vigor and frost tolerance, this interspecific cross between Fuchsia campos-portoi and Fuchsia magellanica was bred by Peter Baye. ‘Campo Thilco’s lovely demeanor can be coupled with Salvia ‘Limelight’, and due to an abundance of rhizomes, its numerous basal shoots should be pruned hard each spring.

Blooms June–October.

Size: 3' 0"–6' 0" high x 4' 0" wide. Zone 6/7.

Autumnal Fanfare: Lambent Leaves, Glistening Berries, Fleeting Flowers....

Here at Digging Dog, we’ve had some welcome rain to actually soak the soil. With the onset of shorter days and chilly nights, a quieter contemplative mood envelopes parts of the garden. As many herbaceous plants are fading into dormancy, evergreen shrubs, bold-toned leaves, textural seed-heads plus plump glistening berries take center stage. The impressive group of plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye when I strolled through the nursery and garden yesterday. I hope you enjoy these compelling autumnal offerings. In many locales throughout the country, there’s still time to tuck some botanical gems into an empty garden nook.
