Fuchsia Red Spider is very aptly named for this variety, as the blooms when trailing, resemble the legs and look of a red spider. Imagine this cascade of vibrant colour, tumbling over pots, baskets and edges.

Trailing Fuchsias are a really elegant, classic plant, with vibrant blooms, that tumble over the edges of pots, baskets. A real garden must have, or stunning for balconies and patios. They will flower, all the way from Spring until late Autumn. They are fast growing, and extremely easy to grow and maintain.

    About the Trailing Fuchsia Red Spider

    Care Instructions

    Fuchsias are traditionally planted into pots and baskets in warm, frost free locations. A Moist well drained soil is recommended. Watering tips are, try not to let them dry out, and also don't let them be waterlogged. Water in the evening if possible.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Trailing Fuchsias prefer cooler climates, they don't do well in hot direct, afternoon sunlight. So, sun, partial shade, with a little shelter from winds, is ideal.

    Height and Spread

    Red Spider will grow to height 15-30cm and spread 30-60cm.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - To keep your fuchsias flowering well, feed with a all purpose, water soluble fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during growing season.
    Pruning - Remove faded flowers, pinch off shoots at the 3rd set of leaves up, then repeat. After 6 weeks your fuchsia will be lovely and bushy.
    Propagation - Cuttings are good, cut the shoot below the last leaves. Pop them in a greenhouse or frost free location.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.
