Fuchsia 'Lena' for Steragram...

Just to show you how well 'Lena ' is doing Sue,since you kindly sent me one a few years ago..It know it has a lax habit,when planted in the ground,so I decided to pot it up this year..and I am so pleased with it..thank you once again....

Thank you Sandra! I was wondering how it was doing only the other day. Did you see Hywel's lovely picture of one on his latest fuchsia blog? Mine are planted behind a small retaining wall but still trail on the path.

Thanks Angela,I agree,especially this one..It has special memories for me,as I had one belonging to my mum,which sadly died,after many years ... I had bought it for her originally..and Sue kindly offered me a replacement..:o) x.

As you can see,It's looking lovely,Sue..and yes I did see the photo on Hywel's blog,thank you..It was always my intention to post you a photo,but I was waiting for it to look at its best..which I think it does ,since I potted it up..I shall take some cuttings this year..just in case ...

That's looking stunning Sandra. What a lovely way to remember your mum xx
Empress of Prussia is doing really well, by the way. I'll try and get a pic for you soon :-))

Thanks Julia..the original was bought way back in 1972/3..before I got married..so it had a good innings :o)
Glad 'Empress' is doing well for you..I now have six in various borders :o) looking forward to seeing yours...x

What a lovely thought from Sue.
It is a very pretty fuschia. I really like the dainty ones.
I have asked Hywel to count how many different ones he has......he is probably still out there adding them up!! :-)

It was,wasn't it Chris? and thank you for your nice comment too..I think Hywel will have a job on his hands,but I seem to remember he did once do a head count ..he could be gone quite some time,if he does another ! Lol..x
