unexpected fuchia babies?
One of my favorite fuchias is reproducing. While weeding, I noticed a number of small plants coming up in a circle around it. I'm thrilled, but also confused.
Does anyone know if the babies could have been produced by seed? A couple of years ago I did dig this one up and try to divide it. Is it possible I left pieces of root in the ground, and they have now formed new plants?
This is a hardy fuchia, low growing in an arching habit, with reddish stalks and veins and olive green foliage. The flowers are red outside and purple inside. I have a lot of other fuchias in my garden, but the stalks and foliage on the new plants look just like the parent.
Thanks much. I'd appreciate any info on the method of reproduction. Also, would it be a good idea to pot them up now, or to leave them in the ground until fall? It's a bit hot here right now, and I'm concerned that they might now like being moved, but I know that some seedlings need to be moved when tiny.
