08/2021: Planted next to fence and mountain hemlock in raised bed by creek.
I originally purchased this amazing variegated fuchsia along with our Bruns serbian spruce, thinking it would look great paired with the conifer and purple coral bells. However the color and pattern on this variety is so bold that when I finally set everything together I decided it looked pretty garish against the other plantings in the area. In fact I had a hard time figuring out where to put it – our planting scheme has settled into the greenish yellow foliage/purple contrasting bloom color, and this plant really didn’t sit well with that palette which is in most parts of our yard. I ultimately planted it in a mostly neutral green spot against our ivy-covered north side fence, between a mountain hemlock and an escallonia.
