Year Introduced: 1977
Flowers and flowers, at least two per node, a wonderful fuchsia, that’s a favourite with exhibitors and gardeners alike. Keep in good light, and get it outdoors as much as you can in Spring, as soon as it’s safe to do so; this one quickly gets leggy under glass.
No fuchsia copes well with overwatering, but Cambridge Louie is particularly sensitive to it when cuttings are first potted, and will respond in the traditional way, by quickly dying.
Named after Mrs Louise Napthen, a keen Cambridge gardener who sadly lost her sight but was able to tell her beloved fuchsias apart by their smell.
Tube: Warm pink, medium sized
Sepals: Quite long, warm pink, held horizontally with a trace of green on the recurved tips.

Parentage: Lady Isobel Barnett x Mr A Huggett.
