Shadow Dancers® Betty Fuchsia Care
Plant Shadow Dancer Betty in full shade to part shade for best performance. Use an all-purpose, slow release fertilizer when planting in containers and landscape. No further fertilizer is needed in a landscape setting, but feed with a water-soluble flowering plant food every six to eight weeks when planted in baskets or containers.
Whether you are planting this Fuchsia in the landscape or in containers, make sure the soil has good drainage and is friable. These fuchsias prefer moist, but not soggy soil, don’t let them go too long between waterings. Deadheading is not necessary. Watch for spider mites if bringing these plants indoors for the winter.
