possibly my favourite fuchsia ~ its so shy but sometimes they seem like little tiny lanterns in the evening

Have to agree - it's the purity of this one that I love!

yes, simplicity and purity, maybe the same thing?

Those are lovely ...
how tall have they grown ?

25 Jun, 2012

 

Only 20/25cm Terra. Still lovely though! Lovelier still for just under 70pence each!

Well done Meanie!
This is so dainty. How lovely :)

They certainly were Terra!

It's what I call a classic Fuchsia Tommymoo............

Aw beautiful, ive never seen a white one before! im starting to expect the unexpected with your photos meanie :-)

It's hardy too Leigh.

Should be freely available in most garden centres, although probably not at this price!

i keep my eye out for a bargain ;-)

have you ever made one into a standard?

Delonix - I reckon that this is a pretty much perfect bloom too. Striking, without being too showy!

I'm not a lover of standards to be honest Sticki, so that is a no.

would probably look stunning in this particular case but i can understand not liking them.

i would rather have a large rock face in the garden and these planted in the crevices?!!

I'm putting a couple in the rockery.
