It's not unusual for hardy fuchsias to have an upright profile with dainty flowers hanging gracefully over the foliage. What distinguishes 'Erecta' from other perennial fuchsias are the pink and white flowers that tend to face upward, like little cups and saucers. The pale white sepals also stand out against the lush green foliage, and really pop in shady gardens. All-day filtered sun or morning sun with afternoon shade typically produce the most prolific blooms while keeping the plant healthy. 'Erecta' lasts right up until frost, then will reappear in the spring, eventually reaching three feet in height and about two feet wide, the perfect size for hummingbirds and hummingbird-watchers.
