I'd never even heard of a Fuchsia until I went to the nursery today, and even then I had to ask exactly what it was when we were checking out. The pink and purple blooms caught my eye (it has TONS) and I fell in LOVE. Maybe its a Dollar Princess... maybe its a Royal Velvet... who knows!
However.. I have no experience in growing plants and I want to make sure I don't kill this poor thing! I know it doesn't need direct afternoon sun, but since the summers here are horrible can I bring the plant inside in the afternoon? And will Miracle Grow kill it or should I use a different kind of fertilizer? How much water is too much?
Is there any hope for a Fuchsia to grow way down here in Southeast Alabama?
Love all the gorgeous pix in the gallery too!! I am addicted now! :)
