Has anyone in the Western NY area tried Fuchsia Magellinica? Is it truly winter hardy to zone 6?
I tried it once, but it was a LATE start of a division so it didn't survive a harsh z5 winter. However, the division came from a friend who has grown it for years near her house in a city, where it's just a bit warmer than here. I suspect that it would work fine in z6.
