Fuchsia Companion Plants 

Fuchsia 3-inch potted perennial plants and annual hanging baskets grow well in most climates but they prefer the shadier areas of your yard.

Whatever companions you choose to accompany them must share the same love of low light.

As a hanging basket, it’s usually best to keep a fuchsia by itself as it grows in every direction. Furthermore, it won’t have to compete with other plants for space or sunlight. 

However, perennial fuchsias love to be planted in the ground as a landscape plant and pair well with other plants that have varying different flower and leaf types.

Great companion plants for both fuchsias include:


Fuchsia Plant Care

Overall, fuchsia perennial plants and annual baskets are fairly low maintenance but do require a bit of care to extend their growing season.

In general, fuchsia plants:

  • Need shade or low sun
  • Like well-draining soil
  • Need regular watering, especially on hotter days
  • Some maintenance is needed to pinch or cut away seed pods so plants keep blooming
  • Spent blooms need to be picked up every couple of days (or they will pile up and look messy!)

With proper care, your fuchsia plants will bloom continuously from spring through the fall season and provide food for all the pollinators throughout this time.
