Welcome to Hortulus Fuchsiarum, the little urban fuchsia garden at Fuchsias in the City. This city refuge is cloistered within the high-rises of Manhattan and inhabited by fuchsias, hostas, ferns, astilbes and way too many other shade-loving plants. But, hey, it's the City, OK? We're used to being crowded. Curious about the fast-paced life of these Fuchsias in the City

It’s now mid Spring at Hortulus Fuchsiarum.
The season officially started on Sunday, March 20 at 12:30 am EDT as the Vernal Equinox passed over the City.

hanging with lots of other shady urban things?

Of course you are. So come on in. You’ll be surprised. I promise. Manhattan isn't just about concrete sidewalks and tar beaches. Besides Central Park, there's also a surprising bit of green hidden away in the City's many quiet corners and courtyards.  Enter the garden.

And don’t forget to take a peek at the rest of the website. The motto around here may be
Fuchsiae in urbe but there’s also lots of general information on fuchsias—both from around the corner and around the world.

If you’re looking to find  fuchsias for sale, learn about their  care & culture and how to grow them, join a  fuchsia society or group, and much, much more, you’ve come to the right place. Fuchsias in the City has all the stuff you need to know about fuchsias.  Site guide.

A garden, of course, is a living, changing thing so don't neglect to drop by every now and then as the seasons progress to see how things are coming along. You can also follow  The Urban Fuchsia + Blog or my early morning tweets on the urban fuchsia, as well as on many various other thoughts on gardening and horticulture in the City or otherwise, on Twitter as  @Fuchsiarius. Come and join in the conversations.

Comments? Questions? I'd love to hear from you!

Greetings. It’s coming straight for us on Valentine’s Day. Surprise! No chocolates, though. No flowers. No Cupid’s arrow of love comes with this greeting. Nope. None indeed. Rather, an icy dagger is plunging straight down from the Arctic into the heart. An extreme Polar Vortex is expected to arrive this Sunday…

An Escape Down the Rabbit Hole
