I want to plant winter hard fuchsias in my west facing garden. I need to know how much sun they can tolerate and how to overwinter them. What are the best varieties?

Here is a link to a complete list of fuchsias and their classifications. You are going to want to look at the ones classified VH (very hardy). The hardier varieties are said to handle full sun better.

There is a swiss fuchsia society that you can contact. That is probably going to be an excellent resource for you as you will be able to acquire information about exactly which fuchsias will work in your area and which will not based on other people's experiences in your region.
