Which fuchsias have people found have bloomed perpetually this summer?
And also, which fuchsias have people found performed poorly? I do so love fuchsias, and I'm on about them again. I have grown quite a lot of them this summer because I was under the impression that they are reliable and virtually perpetual flowering, especially the dwarfer kind of hardy ones. I couldn't have been more wrong. After some fabulous flowering for a few weeks in July, my 'Tom Thumb' and 'Lady Thumb' ceased flowering and gave up. People on this site advised me that they were probably just 'having a rest' and would go for another wave of flowering when ready,- but these plants never did. Only one variety (non-hardy) has been fabulous and unending, 'Paula Jane' (pictured in basket), which I will try to grow again next year. I'd be really grateful if others could share with me what varieties, hardy or otherwise, they have found able to flower all summer. I am so wanting to put together some sort of list if at all I can.
