Fuchsia 'Army Nurse

 

Fuchsia 'Army Nurse'

Fuchsias are grown for their very attractive, usually pendent flowers that are borne continuously from summer to autumn. Hardy types tend to be the larger bush or hedging type, with simple single flowers, which as the name suggests will over winter well. 'Army Nurse' has violet-purple semi-double blooms which are carried on the compact stems of this hardy bush variety.
