@alan1111 it’s a lot less ‘in your face’ than a lot of fuchsias isn’t it 😛

@alan1111 it has better colours than you’d expect from a hardy fuchsia. I thought they were usually the deep pink/purple ones

When I first look at it I didn't think it was hardy even better that it is you won't have to take cuttings each year 👍

@alan1111 I must admit I never take cuttings 🙈 most have always come back, even the more tender ones. Although with the winter forecasts they will be going in the greenhouse this year. Are your brugs still outdoors?

Your lucky so with the fuchsias. Better safe than sorry Kerry. The brugs are still out and flowering away 😀 the honey bees are loving them, they come out covered in pollen. On a still night like tonight you can smell them all over the garden 😀 @kez001uk

Couldn't be happier with them Kerry mind you the flowers don't like the damp weather. The flowers close during the day and you can see the bees squeezing in and coming out covered in pollen 😀 I'll keep them going as long as possible 😀 @kez001uk

@alan1111 i bet they don’t! None of us do 😉 that sounds adorable 😂 bees will get in anywhere there’s pollen 🤣

@terrimclaughlin I got lucky with finding a spot where they like to grow. The shade of my shed seems to suit them and they’ve given me a great show of flowers 😍 thank you ☺️

@gjones they’re fascinating to look at, so much about them to notice. I thought I had another the same but instead of the pink stamen it has white. They’re just lovely flowers 💟

It's going on my wishlist 😄😉 It looks different to the one I have. Much more delicate 💜 And purple is my favourite colour 😍

@ublaszko it’s a pretty little one, and hardy too 😛

I'm sold! 👍 I threw away a tender one the other day as it's finished flowering and was starting to loose leaves. So glad this one is a hardy one 👍

No matter the colour, it's still very pretty😍 The center part is just stunning -like ruffled satin!

@gjones they’re just fascinating how all of that comes from a tiny white bud. Never get tired of fuchsias 💜
