2018 CLUB PLANT
Although the flowers are small this plant more than makes up for it's size by the sheer volume of the blooms. Dark red and aubergine flowers abound on purple stems, blooming non-stop all season. Dying Embers will grow to 1.5 feet high and wide.
What is a club plant? Every year members of the Oregon Fuchsia Society grow a club plant. This is a plant that has been chosen by the club leadership. Upon arrival, they are the same size. Members take them home and transplant them into a pot, also determined by the leadership. After that every member grows them according to their own style and practices. In August, at the judged fuchsia show, members bring their club plant and there is a friendly competition to see whose plant grew the best. It is always interesting to see how differently all the plants grow.
Check back after the fuchsia show, August 09-11, to see members plants.
