Hardy Hummingbird Fuchsia. We can vouch that this fuchsia is from hardy stock: our friend Suzy Humphrey gave us cuttings from a plant that has wintered over for years here in zone 6B. Plants form 2-3′ tall shrubs up to 4′ wide with age, and bear stems bearing numerous flowers with elongated purple corollas and reflexed pinkish red sepals. We recommend giving this a try in a protected spot in well drained soil in partial shade in the colder zones.
