Fuchsia 'Swingtime'

 

Fuchsia 'Swingtime'

Fuchsias are grown for their very attractive, usually pendent flowers that are borne continuously from summer to autumn. Frost tender fuchsias are the more specialised and elaborately flowered specimens. 'Swingtime' is a low growing upright variety that is frost tender and is more suited for pots or baskets. It has a wonderful mass of white frills on the underskirt petals, topped off with red sepals.
