Where can I buy a hardy white fuchsia?
Hi Sk. I would look on a specialist Fuchsia, website by tapping it into google, or pop to your local GC. and most fuchsias will be in flower there and you could choose.

Most hardy fuschias tend to be deep pink or red, I think. There is one very, very pale pink one with slim flowers that survives up here - Magellicana alba - but I've never seen a white one. That's not to say there isn't one, though.
PS - try Burncoose nurseries:
Interestingly, I see they describe Magellicana alba as a white hardy fuschia, but I know it from my daughter's garden and it is actually the palest ever shade of pink. It also dies back in winter, but comes up strong every year. It's a very pretty bush.
I've got a hardy white fuchsia, I think it's 'Hawkshead'. It has slim white flowers and is reliable even after hard winters.
T&M are offering them via Goy

Now you have a name to google, you may find other options as well. Or go to your garden centre and see if they have 'Hawkshead'
And I've just discovered that there is a hardy white Fuchsia with variegated leaves - it's called 'Sharpitor'
Hi Scotkat I was intrigued by your question and went to the Goypeadia page for Fuchsias, Bonkersbon has one called 'Hawkshead' and Jacque has one called 'Flashlight' why not have a look and see
Thank you all I have been around all my garden centres and wore the tshirt so to speak and have exhausted them no white hardy fuchsias and the hardy that i saw were not healthy looking.
Beattie I do like Sharpitor its nice foilage and think there i whiteknights pearl
Just been searching on ebay and found hardy variegated Gennii so have ordered this one .
But still hoping to get a white one.
I have been wanting one for a while too - didn't want hawkshead because it is too big, I want one with compact growth but bigger flowers. Try this link http://homeandgardening.co.uk/FuchsiaUK.htm, which is what I keep meaning to do.
Thankyou tryed to get into the arcadiafuchsia site but goes no where.
Try this one then. I drove past it once but it was winter so there was no point in going in. I keep hoping for another chance to go to Penarth, only in the spring next time.
How do I say thanks?
