A season-long hummingbird magnet for shady spots, Fuchsia ‘Swingtime’ is one of the most popular trailing fuchsias. Its large flowers have bold, red sepals and contrasting double-white frilled skirts. This easy-care, heat tolerant cultivar trails up to 24 inches. It grows 4-12 inches high and spreads 18-24 inches.

Swingtime attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Fuchsias are native to the subtropical regions of Central America and South America, and to New Zealand and Tahiti. It makes a gorgeous spiller in hanging baskets and window boxes. Put it in a planter with Heuchera ‘Georgia Peach’ and a white begonia for a stunning combination.

Fuchsia Swingtime Plant Care

Swingtime is a heavy feeder. Feed it every two weeks with a liquid fertilizer at half-strength. Deadheading and pruning are not needed. Water in a way that keeps the potting mix moist but well drained. Place Swingtime in a location that is part shade to shade.

Fuchsias are not usually happy indoors during the winter months, but it is worth trying. Locate it near a window with bright, indirect sunlight, in daytime temperatures of 60-70 degrees F and cooler at night. Reduce the amount of watering and fertilizing. In the spring when new growth appears, repot the plant; shake off old potting soil and plant it with new soil in a slightly larger pot.

Fuchsia Swingtime Spacing

This plant has a spread of up to two feet. One plant in a hanging basket, windowbox, or other container, with or without other plants, will make a gorgeous statement.

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.
