Plant of The Week

Fuchsia ‘Lady Boothby’

Climbing Fuchsia ‘Lady Boothby’ is definitely the plant of the moment.  It is a very popular and reliable variety.  A must have plant for all fuchsia enthusiasts.  Tolerant of most soils and aspects this easy to grow fuchsia is totally hardy.  It will tolerate full sun to partial shade.  I have it growing in a large container that used to reside in the centre of my lawn in a completely open position, where it survived the ‘Beast from the East’ and ‘Storm Emma’.

Lady Boothby has a vigorous, upright growth habit and does require some support.  She will happily grow against a wall, fence, pergola, arch, trellis or obelisk and will thicken up nicely if pinched back to form a strong framework.

The flowers are single to semi-double, often born in clusters of three.  The tube and sepals are crimson and corolla is dark purple to aubergine with a magenta flash at the base.  Bred and introduced in 1939 by C.P. Raffill (UK) from a cross between F. alpestris (a Brazilian species discovered in 1843) and F. ‘Royal Purple’ (a French variety introduced in 1896)

An eye-catching fuchsia in its own right Lady Boothby holds both the RHS Award for Garden Merit and the Plants for Pollinators symbol.

Customer Review

"Had a lovely visit to Leonie's fuchsia nursery last weekend. It's really an Aladdin’s cave for fuchsia lovers - over 150 varieties - bush, trailing, hardy, half hardy as well as other garden plants. She is very passionate and knowledgeable and we learnt so much even in a short visit. I'd really recommend you take a trip to enrich your garden. Be inspired while supporting a native enthusiast instead of big industrial growers and imports. "

I really enjoyed my visit to the Irish Fuchsia nursery and was intrigued by the companion planting around the tomatoes. Leonie is very willing to share her considerable expertise and experience and I learnt a lot. Now to plant out the lovely cornflowers and succulents I bought from her at a very reasonable price!".
