Fuchsia ‘Snowcap' is a strong, medium-sized, deciduous shrub with an upright and compact bushy habit. It flowers freely from summer into autumn, producing large white and scarlet semi-double flowers on dark-green foliage. It will thrive in full sun or partial shade and is suitable for growing in a container or herbaceous border. It’s also a great variety to make into a standard tree.

How to take care of Fuchsia Snowcap
Fuchsias grow best in semi shade to filtered light in a sheltered position. Plant the base of the stem 5cm (2in) below the soil surface. It’s half-hardy so you still need to protect the crown from frost in autumn with a winter mulch of compost, bark or straw. Plant Fuchsias into humus rich, moist, well-drained soil and shelter from cold drying winds. Deadhead regularly to ensure it flowers throughout the summer and add a little fertilizer once the main flush has finished to encourage a second round of flowers in autumn. Prune back dead or broken branches in spring, especially on plants that were left outside in areas with mild winters. Keep moist at all times. Apply a dressing of general fertilizer in spring and again in summer. Take cuttings (see below) of hardy fuchsia in early autumn as insurance against frost damage
