Fuchsia procumbens is an attractive species in the evening primrose family, Onagraceae. It is also known by the common names Basket Fuchsia, Trailing Fuchsia and Trailing Queen. Flowers are tubular and predominantly yellow in colour, with red central parts and red-tipped, green petals which curve backwards, termed reflexed. It has a clumping, bushy habit and is half-hardy, coping with temperatures as low as -5 degrees Celsius, plant in a position of full or partial sun, in moist, well-draining soil for optimal growth. This species is part of the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants which support pollinator populations by providing ample amounts of nectar and/ or pollen. A great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
