Meet Margaret …

She has been growing in my garden for many years, about 8 feet up a trellis and is quite hardy, but her name has been a mystery.

The trellis is at the side of a Perspex shelter, and the Fuchsia invades it every year, producing curtains of lovely flowers inside the shelter.
I have to bend down to avoid them when I go in there but they look beautiful.

She has such vivid colouring !

Recently in a Fuchsia group I joined on facebook (not that I bother much with that) I saw her photo and it was labelled ‘Margaret’ …

Mystery solved ! :)

Thanks for sharing Hywel. To see a plant that is happy with its environment is rewarding for all our hours of work.
Do you feed it ? If so, when and what with.

RHS say "Margaret" is hardy and vigorous. Yours prove they are correct!

Thank you all …

I never feed it Diane. It just fends for itself.

Margaret is very lovely!

When we were away last week we met a lady called Margaret but I got into my head that she was called Rosemary for some strange reason........so, be warned!!!

What a beauty so pleased you eventually found her name, so she is a climber then? thats good to know!

17 Sep, 2018

 

Margaret is a real beauty!

It's good to have a name for her Hywel, such a pretty Fuchsia.

17 Sep, 2018

 

Wow, it's beautiful. Glad that you now know the name.

My word, what a show stopper! I aways thought Lady Boothby was the first "climbing" one but Margaret is much more beautiful don't you think?

17 Sep, 2018

 

Thank you all,

Dotty daisy I don't think Margaret actually climbs, just grows tall in the shelter of shrubs and a Perspex sheet,
... although when I grew a cutting in the open ground it got over 4 feet.

Steragram It's a different shape and colour to Lady Boothby, more double and a brighter mauve.

It is so satisfying to find you can give this lovely fuchsia a name at last.

17 Sep, 2018

 

Thank you, yes I have been trying to identify it for a long time.

18 Sep, 2018

 

I am so pleased for you Hywel you ve found the name at last what stunning photos. Is it a Fuchsia tree. 😊

18 Sep, 2018

 

What a beautiful fuchsia. It's great that you have been able to name it. Hywel is it hardy?

18 Sep, 2018

 

Stunning!

18 Sep, 2018

 

Thank you all …

I don't think it's a tree Thruppenybit, it just grows tall in the shelter of the trellis and other shrubs.
When I grew a cutting in the open ground it only got to about 5 feet - more of a shrub really.

Yes Marjorie it is hardy, it has come through many cold winters …

Thanks Bathgate !

It would make a lovely tree I was reading it does nt do well in a pot out side does better in the ground if its put out side it said its a large Bush. Thank you Hywel for your reply 😊x

18 Sep, 2018

 

Yes, a large bush , I think it gets too big for a pot, it likes plenty of room for the roots.

18 Sep, 2018

 

So satisfying! The flowers remind me of you Army Nurse, I like the combination. So many flowers!

20 Sep, 2018

 

That's is handy to know thank you Hywel.

25 Sep, 2018

 

Yes, I'm pleased to have found it.

26 Sep, 2018

 

Oh that is very good Hywel, you have shown this one in the past but I think she has certainly excelled herself this year, fabulous...
