Want to know everything there is to know about fuchsias? Then you’ve come to the right place! 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 hanging

Autumn in the City, now.

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!

Of course, not all of these gems are dedicated just to the fuchsia… but they're still thoroughly interesting for the visit. There's long a history to public gardens here, as well. The first was the legendary Elgin Botanic Garden, founded in 1801 by one of the most prominent New Yorkers of his day.
