  • Rare variegated fuchsia!

Firecracker is a step up from many other fuchsias because it has beautiful variegated green leaves edged in white with just a kiss of pink. The 1 ½-inch long, trumpet-like orange-red flowers flare at their tips to invite hummingbirds, which can’t seem to resist fuchsia.

A 30-inch tall upright grower, Firecracker is perfect as a standalone in a pot or as the thriller in a mixed arrangement. Firecracker blooms from planting to a killing frost.

Fuchsia Firecracker Care

Grow Firecracker in the sun or shade in a container. Use a high quality potting mix, which is formulated for drainage, which is important for fuchsia. Firecracker has average water needs, so water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Deadheading (removing spent flowers) is not necessary.

Firecracker Fuchsia can be overwintered as a houseplant in a bright, sunny window. Keep an eye open for whitefly, which can be a pest on fuchsia.

Fuchsia Firecracker Spacing

A full, upright plant with a 30-inch spread, grow one Firecracker Fuchsia in a 12-inch pot. Because this fuchsia is tall, space out these plants more than typical and add fillers and spillers to create a lush full planting. Firecracker Fuchsia doesn’t usually do well when planted in the landscape. Consider placing a pot in the landscape where you’d like the look and color of Firecracker Fuchsia.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
