Fuchsia Plants
Q.

Is my fuchsia tree diseased or can it be helped?

Zone San Francisco, CA | Patty Hauck added on April 17, 2015 | Answered

The fuchsia is a tree about 5 ft tall. It is in a semi-shady spot and is about 40 yrs old. It only blooms sporadically and some blooms don't quite bloom all the way. The leaves turn yellow and brown and curl up and the bark on it has gotten dry, cracked and basically falling off. I've been watering it, loosened the soil around the base, trimmed it back, propped any sagging branches with sticks, fed it with Miracle Grow. What am I doing wrong and what else can I do to save it?

I have found an image that show peeling bark of a Fuchsia tree, which is normal.
Has your tree been pruned or trimmed back?
