Gall Mite resistant fuchsia?

anneow(Z9 sunset16)May 23, 2009

I have had a small but treasured collection of fuchsias for many years. Two years ago I planted 4 cultivars in the ground and they did very well. THIS year I now have fuchia gall mite and its bad. I pulled two plants up and dumped them in the trash today. I will probably treat the other s with insecticide (imcloprimid?) but I am concerned with the effect on hummers and bees, butterflies etc. So, I would like to replace the lost plants with mite-resistant ones. Does anyone know of mite resistant fuchias?

Hi,
Just have look at the webpage of the North Western Fuchsia Society. There is a listing of cultivars.
