Trailing Dark Eyes: 

Dark Eyes Trailing Fuchsia has an exotic and eye-catching beauty. The green foliage cascades down into a beautiful color scheme of pink and purple delight. The flowers mimic a festive ballroom gown suspended in the air. This plant looks marvelous in window boxes and hanging baskets. Typically, Dark Eyes Fuchsia is used as a spiller in container planting.  Requiring only 4 to 6 hours of sunlight daily, Fuchsia triumphs in shade to part shade. Quite easy to maintain, Dark Eyes can be trimmed back when flowers are spent to increase the bloom. Deadheading is not necessary though. As long as the soil is moist and well-draining, fuchsia will thrive.

Description

Fuchsia FEW-she-uh:

Beautiful, delicate fuchsias come in thousands of varieties and colors with multi-colored blossoms that hang and droop beautifully from baskets, planters and pots. Fuchsia packs plenty of flower power, opening hordes of blooms over a very long flowering window from spring to fall frost.  The traditional flower form on these blooming beauties features an outer skirt surrounding an inner petticoat. These two flower parts are most often different colors, giving fuchsia blooms a festive feel. Sometimes the inner petticoat layer boasts rich ruffles. Fuchsia flowers easily steal the show when they’re on display, and they’re also a hummingbird magnet.  Fuchsia plants are some of the earliest ones sold in spring because these extravagant bloomers prefer cool air. For many types, their ideal growing temperature is 55° to 80°F.  To succeed with fuchsias, give them bright indirect light in most regions with protection from afternoon sun.
