Fuscia plant, will it regrow?

 Hi all, 

I planted a fuscia last year into the ground (not from seed) it died and dried, this year its sprouted from the ground and old branches, will it regrow back?

    Hi. @kelseyrosinaanson : Welcome to the forum! *The 'regrowth' looks healthy enough. Best to clear as much of the dead stuff, trim back towards the new shoots & 'tickle' the surrounding soil to aerate the surface but not too deeply else you risk damaging the healthy root system. Don't let it dry out & you should be rewarded with a floral show later on this summer. Best of luck anyway!

    No pic, but this is normal behaviour for tenderer Fuchsias.

    Its will be lovely this year, just cut off all the old growth down as far as the new leaves.

    Even the hardier ones can be like that after a cold winter. It's absolutely normal, no need to worry.
  • Amazing! Thank you for the tips guys! 

    New to this so wasn't sure what I was looking at 😊 


  • Seems to be doing okay!
