Fuchsia 'Empress of Prussia'

Very hardy,and another one I like very much.I now have three in my long border, two in the back,and one in the front.as they are good gap fillers,and flower till at least November...

That's nice...
What does it look like in the winter ?

Thanks, its like most Fuchsia's Terra,and loses all its foliage,but I leave all the stems on over winter,and prune as usual,when new growth appears,which was very late this year..Even though I haven't lost one yet,I still give it a thick mulch,and put some garden fleece round the roots...very pessimistic,aren't I ? Even though I know they are hardy...

I really like this one so pretty with the small red flowers and nice round shape, would look lovely in pots!

This is my original ,Carole,and started off in a pot.It is now about 3ft across,and the others are fast catching up.Lol.Eventually,it got too big,so had to go in the garden.I think a very large pot,would be ok,though...They all keep this compact shape too.....

Thanks Yorkshire...The friend who gave me a cutting a few years ago,lost hers this year.She lives quite high up at a place called Cinderhills,outside Holmfirth,if you know it,and they get the bad weather much more intense than us.I always take a couple of cuttings of mine..just in case,so am delighted to be able to give one back to replace it...Isn't gardening a wonderful thing ?

think I know where you are on about,they always get the weather bad, glad you took some cuttings for her.
