Its spelt 'Fuchsia 'Nicki's Findling' which might help you research it better? I dont think its hardy? But Hywel is the member to know?

Hi Sonia,

'Nicki's Findling' is a salmon and orange/red single - pic below:

and is only meant to be semi-hardy as best, so you've done very well to keep it in your garden for 15 years.

My experience is that many Fuchsias are actually far hardier than expected when given the chance!
