Fuchsia: Flower Buds Emerge After Pruning!

Nearly three weeks after my visit to the Lowe’s bargain bin in the gardening department, my fuchsia plant is showing very impressive growth of new flower buds. Wow! These white-colored buds will eventually mature, with a flower bursting from each one.img_1381 This plant is also showing new leaf growth, so the plant really is healthy. Click on the photo for a close-up view.

I lightly pruned the tips of this plant with gardening shears shortly after bringing it home and I also removed spent flowers. This strategy has been fruitful. I will post more photos of this plant when the sepals part to reveal the colorful flowers within. I can’t wait!

To think that this gorgeous, healthy plant was relegated to “ugly duckling” status after its flowers faded, when it only needed a little bit of time and TLC to reveal the gorgeous “swan” it really is. Some of the flowers may start to bloom by Christmas, which would be a thrilling and lovely way to say, “Season’s Greetings!”
