Q.Fuchsia Companion Plants (part Sun)

Zone 97215 | mintchocchip584 added on March 24, 2022 | Answered

I have a fuchsia (prince of orange) in a part sun spot, and I’m looking for some ideas for perennials to plant on either side of it. In research, I keep coming across ferns and hostas, but this spot has more sun than those two typically prefer, and I’d like something with flowers. I’d appreciate any ideas you may have. Thanks!
