Year Introduced: 2011
First class light red and white single, deserves to be more widely grown and shown, naturally short jointed, and bushy. Small flowers, displayed noticeably outwards, very freely and evenly produced. All is neat and beautifully proportioned. Trouble free, a great fuchsia.
John once said of it: 'It is the best plant I have ever produced, upright, vigorous, uniform'. Although he has since produced a few he considers even better, it's still some recommendation from someone who's been growing fuchsias for over 55 years!
We are most grateful to John for generously giving us cuttings of what he considers to be one of the best fuchsias he’s ever raised and are delighted to have it in our collection.

Sepals: Red, pink bias, held 1/4 down, reflexed overall, but with a recurved tip.
