I’m a sucker for multicolor perennials. And since I know fuchsias do well in our garden and are generally pest-free, when I saw this at the Lake Forest Park Garden Sale I had to have it. Of course I didn’t have any idea where I would put it. To make room, I ended up moving an overgrown Astilbe that was blocking the view into the creek. This is a low grower, so if it doesn’t mind some midday sun, it should be a perfect spot.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
