The Fuchsia species garden at Lisselan was first thought of in 1999, as a way to extend the flowering season in the gardens. Planting commenced in 2002 with 19 species plants received from nurseries in the U.K, as there are no Fuchsia nurseries in Ireland. All Fuchsia species chosen were to keep with the ethos of Robinsonian theme of Lisselan Gardens, a natural mixture of native and exotic species. Over the last decade Lisselan have extended the collection to over 30 species in the garden with more species to be added as they become more sizable. Some species are too delicate and are on pot display.
Lisselan Gardens in West Cork are the only centre in Ireland fully supported by the European Fuschia Society. The Society supplies Lisselan in Clonakilty with fuchsia cuttings and recognize that Lisselan are the only centre in Ireland that have their fuchsia outdoors. Lisselan is also a proud member of the Irish Fuchsia Society. The Irish Fuchsia Society ordered 1st Prize exhibited to the Lisselan Fuchsia Fulgens "Minata" on 16th July 2006.
