The production of a wide selection of Hardy and Half Hardy Fuchsia varieties is the main focus of Irish Fuchsia Nursery. I am in the process of establishing, building and maintaining the Irish Hardy/Half Hardy Fuchsia Collection.

Our original 2018 stock is made up of 54 varieties from which Irish Fuchsia Nursery will produce quality plants, in a range of sizes. Last year we introduced 6 new varieties and late Spring, early Summer 2019 will see another 7 available for sale. We hope to expand our current list of varieties to 81 in total by Autumn 2019.
