Red and Yellow

The Hardy Fuchsia, planted next to the native Golden Rod, is in full bloom. Both bloom mid to late summer, and they are so happy growing together. Sometimes planting by happenstance works out.

Addition: I don't know the exact variety of fuchsia; it's a shrub, as opposed to the fuchsias that are sold in garden centers in spring. We got it as a cutting from John's mothers garden the year she died. It's been transplanted around as we've redone the garden, and seems to be very happy here.

I love fuschia, too. I have three varieties and am amazed at their hardiness. Yours is beautiful. xo Jenny
