I know it's a fuschia and it's gorgeous but I don't know it's name!

I have a good book on fuchsias and there are 4 that look very similar to yours

Melody, mandarin,lollypop and Hindu belle.

Unfortunately googling these comes up with all sorts of others which don't look like those in my book!

I guess there is a good deal of misnaming going on.

Yours is a beauty. Do you know if it's hardy?

Its very pretty. Are you planning to overwinter it under glass? Its possible that if you send your photo to the Fuchsia Society they might name it for you. (Don't know if you have to be a member for them to help...)

Why not ask Bikerbob - he grows only fuschias and is a bit of an expert on them?

Thanks for the replies folks. I have no idea if it's hardy so I was planning on putting it in the green house for the winter. When I got it there was no lable or care instructions with it. It looked a little forlorn and needed a fair bit of TLC but since it has literally blossomed! I'm going to take some cuttings so hopefully I'll have more next year.
