Hello! I purchased a California Fuchsia from the extension service plant sale this spring. It was very small, about 4in and I planted it in a large patio container. I seem to have killed the poor thing, it has shriveled up. It was in the hot sun, perhaps too much sun? Or could I have watered too much? I live in the pacific northwest, in western Oregon. I am looking for suggestions on what to do next time. I prefer this plant in a container, as I have been told it can be a spreader. Thanks!

We had California Fuschia (Epilobium canum) growing in our gardens in California. This is what I can tell you: They require full sun, poor soil and very little water. My guess is that you over-watered.
