fuchsias dancing ....... in the wind.

My favourite Fuchsias. I brought them with me to my new garden, and they now reside in containers, and seem to be enjoying it.


I knew someone would ask me the name -- Thanks Lazy B. I got six of these in those tiny units over ten years ago, and being miserly chose them as they were cheap and unnamed. I never realized how difficult it would be to name them. I found I got to love them more and more, as did passers by, who over the years have stolen a few, especially the ones I trained as standards, which they do well. I like how the amount of rose (or pink) varies with the amount of sun they get. Two standards by my shady front door are almost white. These are about intermediate.

I think they are Pink Desert. But any alternative ideas gratefully accepted.


And Fuchsias doing so well again this year, after a late start following the severe Winter.


Essential to View On Black and I even like it LARGE
