Year Introduced: 1980
Beautifully shaped flowers. Shows best colour in shady conditions. A very successful exhibition cultivar that still holds its own.
Pale pink, horizontal, strongly recurved almost to tube, slight twist.
Corolla: Seashell pink, small red basal veins, long, smooth, overlapping petals, quarter flared.
Foliage: Light to medium green.
Parentage: Sport of Symphony.
"A true single fuchsia with baby pink tube and sepals which recurve to cover the tube. The long single pink corolla is almost identical in colour to the tube and sepals. Very free flowering and easy to grow. This is not a seedling but a sport from the American cultivar Symphony. Whilst dressing a show plant of the cultivar Symphony I found one branch where the corolla of all the flowers had changed from lilac to pink. The main plant was cut away and the sport grown on and propagated. It is widely grown in the southern counties.
Named after my late mother. A lovely fuchsia well worth a place in any collection. Upright. Took best in show at Mona Fuchsia Society Show 1999. Still exhibited with success".
