(Fuchsia Blue Eyes) Bright blue corollas are topped by pale pink sepals in Fuchsia 'Blue Eyes', an upright to trailing fuchsia with medium to large blossoms. Ideal for display in a hanging basket, Blue Eyes’ branches rise about 4 to 8 inches before trailing. Hummingbirds love it.

One way that fuchsias are categorized is by the number of petals in their corollas. Fuchsia ‘Blue Eyes’ is a double due to having 8 or more petals. Semi-doubles have 5, 6, or 7 petals, and singles only have 4. Blue Eyes’ bending characteristic also categorizes it as being a procumbent fuchsia because, if planted in the ground, its branches creep without setting roots. In addition to procumbent species, the fuchsia genus includes shrubs and climbers of varying heights.

All fuchsias require moist, but not soggy, soil as well as fertilizer every two to three weeks. Although some grow well in full sun, all prefer some degree of shade. Blue Eyes needs partial shade throughout the day, such as on a patio where trees provide dappled sunlight.

Fuchsias are primarily native to Mexico, Central America, and South America. The genus became a happy transplant to the Pacific Northwest and other cool, coastal climates (such as in Ireland and the UK) in the 1800s. Northern California nurseryman Philipp F. Reedstrom registered Blue Eyes with the American Fuchsia Society in 1954.
