i just bought my first Fuschia today and I'm just wondering where to plant it. Can it tolerate the Tennessee heat and humidity in full sun or does it need some shade? It's called swingtime.

RE: newbie

All annual or hanging basket fuchsias need shade. Swingtime is a trailing or cascading type of annual fuchsia, best in a hanging basket or a container where it can show off its cascading habit. This plant will grow in almost complete shade (like under a covered porch) but must have at the very least protection from any afternoon sun. And they don't much care for heat, either. Make sure it gets plenty of water.
