A newly introduced, hardy Fuchsia, that produces large, white and violet-blue flowers, which fade to naroon-purple and seem to drip from the branches for a long period throughout summer and autumn. Wonderful for adding lashings of colour to a mixed border, it will also flourish in a generously-sized pot and can be under-planted with seasonal bedding.
- Garden care: To encourage growth, pinch out the growing tips of young plants after the sixth or seventh pair of leaves. During the growing season water regularly, applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month. Cut back to the permanent framework in early spring.
