    Product Description

    Hardy Fuchsia is one of our exclusive introductions from the Northern Belle series, bred by Dr. Keith Zary and the Gardens Alive! Research and Development Team. The Northern Belle series has unprecedented hardiness for a southern sun-lover like crape myrtle. It won't just pull through a cold winter, but it'll actually perform beautifully all the way up through zone 6. In our zone 6 test garden, we didn't even give it winter protection and it bloomed in abundance. This variety has extraordinarily vivid color on the midsummer blooms—right about the time the summer cookouts are picking up steam and many blooming plants are waning. In warmer zones it can grow taller, we've seen it up to 5' in California, and in cool zones it'll die back to the ground in winter and grow to around 3' tall.
