Upright Fuchsias need moderate winter temperatures to survive as summer-blooming perennials that die to ground in winter and return in the next growing season. In the warmer parts of their range, they are shrubs that may bloom year-round. They range from dwarf varieties no more than 2 feet tall to types rising up to 12 feet. Many upright cultivars are fine choices for container growing, whether as annuals in areas with chilly winters or perennials where winters are mild. In general, upright Fuchsias thrive in full sun to partial shades. Like their genus, in general, they tolerate full shade but bloom less in that kind of setting.
(Beacon Fuchsia) Upright with bushy, dark green foliage, Fuchsia ‘Beacon’ has deep pink sepals that flare or drape demurely over mauve-pink corollas. It’s a short, compact shrub that is ideal for perennial borders, containers, and for growing as a summer-blooming annual.
(Cardinal Fuchsia) Introduced in 1938 by the historic Evans & Reeves Nurseries in Southern California, Fuchsia ‘Cardinal’ is a tall shrub with flowers composed of lovely red sepals and magenta corollas.
(Celia Smedley Fuchsia) White to light pink sepals flare out over the strawberry red petals of Fuchsia ‘Celia Smedley’. The flowers hang pendulously amid the veined, mid-green foliage of this mid-sized, upright beauty.
(Display Fuchsia) Along borders and in containers, the floriferous, petite Fuchsia ‘Display’ puts on a long-blooming show with its rose-pink corollas topped with flirty skirts of upward flipping carmine red sepals.
(Galadriel Fuchsia) One of the mysteries of Fuchsia 'Galadriel' is why some clones have creamy white sepals with red striped tips whereas others, such as the one we sell, have creamy red sepals. It's a puzzle, not a difference in soil or photographic light.
(Galfrey Lye Fuchsia) Smoky pink-red petals peek out from behind white sepals with a pale pink blush in mite-resistant Fuchsia ‘Galfrey Lye’. It’s a mid-sized, upright shrub with long, floriferous, trailing stems and mid-green foliage. Hummingbirds love it.
(Margaret Fuchsia) Violet corollas with red stripes hang from the upwardly curled, carmine red sepals of Fuchsia ‘Margaret’. The flowers are surrounded by small, light green leaves with a subtle red tint.
(Phyllis Fuchsia) Creamy rose-red sepals flare over deep lavender-red corollas in Fuchsia ‘Phyllis’. It’s an upright shrub ideal as a short deciduous hedge where winter temperatures are moderate. Phyllis also grows well in containers and as a summer annual.
(Pixie Fuchsia) The red sepals and rosy lavender corollas of Fuchsia ‘Pixie’ flowers stand out amid its yellowish green foliage. The impressed veins of its lance-shaped leaves make this upright, deciduous shrub even more attractive.
(Prince of Orange Fuchsia) A pale salmon-pink tube and sepals top the deep salmon-orange corollas of Fuchsia ‘Prince of Orange’. Although an upright variety, this deciduous shrub has lax foliage ideal for container plantings. A deciduous perennial in warm winter regions, it’s a fine summer annual where winters are cold.
(Remembrance Fuchsia) Flowers comprised of red sepals turned upward above pale rose pink corollas with red veins in Fuchsia 'Remembrance' giving it the look of a delicious confection.
(Santa Cruz Fuchsia) Candy red is a good description for the tubes and recurved sepals of Fuchsia ‘Santa Cruz’ flowers, which have deep violet corollas. This tall, upright shrub is a hummingbird favorite.
(Bolivian Fuchsia) Hummingbirds love the clusters of long, thin, intensely red tubular flowers dangling from the blue-green foliage of Fuchsia boliviana. Its lance-shaped leaves are attractively ribbed.
(White Bolivian Fuchsia) A tall, wide shrub with fuzzy, gray-green foliage, Fuchsia boliviana ‘Alba’ features clusters of long white tubes flaring out into white sepals that are red on their undersides. The tiny, four-petaled corollas are also red.
