I was looking at fuchsias in a gardening catalog and I think they are beautiful! I would love to get some to hang around my back deck. It is in the shade all day long from the house and the trees in the back lot. Would they survive here (East Texas, zone 8) I saw that there are a few heat tolerant species, but they aren't the ones I like, of course. LOL! I like the light pink w/lavender. I would hate to buy them just to watch them suffer though.
