Hi, I am
Hi, my name is Fleur!
The well-known Fuchsia. Here at Plantanious they think my flowers look like ballerinas. I am a true classic and can be found in many Dutch gardens. All summer long I will treat you to my exuberant flowers. Enjoy!
Although you can find me in almost every Dutch garden, I originally come from very far away. How far away? Well, all tropical areas around the equator, that's how far! Yet I can grow in very different climates. I can grow in tropical areas, but also at high altitudes where it can be very cold. A jack-of-all-trades!
Where should you place me?
I like to stand in a light, sheltered spot. I love a bit of sun, but be careful with the fierce midday sun!
What do I like?
I like a very regular sip of water, because I drink a lot! I also like to get some fertilizer twice a month. Outside the flowering season, I need less water and no fertilizer.
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
