Fuschia Lambada

This fuschia has proven very tough. I bought it filled with aphids so I gave it a good drowning again and again until there were almost bare roots. The blooming halted, but started up again once the bugs had been eliminated. It shows very compact growth and in november began blooming again indoors in a indirect lighted window, with almost no aid from my lights. Really a trooper. I'll have to name it once I've got through a year. I've kept its pot small and it is in a cool position. Light pink with purple centers, the color is much lighter and more delicate now indoors. More a shrimp pink in summer.
