Description

This large-leaved, almost frost-hardy evergreen shrub bears large clusters of attractive rose-purple flowers followed by bunches of dark purple fruit. In a sheltered spot it makes an incredibly attractive specimen, flowering throughout the year if kept warm and dryish. Although botanically a fuchsia, and looking more like a lilac, its identity often puzzles people who admire it!

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
