I doubt I will ever purchase another Fushia. It was so beautiful and then so ugly. They are way too tempermental and expensive. Trying to figure out what was wrong was a pain in the tail. From now on it will be the old standbys for me. It was too sad to see it just steadily go down hill. I tried to do all that everyone posted but.....ARGHHH . My gardens are so beautiful and lush. I always thought I had a green thumb, but not with a Fushia. God bless you who have the patience with that plant.
