Free flowering, flowers are small, elegant and lovely. This cultivar can claim to have traces of its genes in all white tubed fuchsias. Originally a seedling unintentionally raised by Gulliver of Herstmonceaux in 1840 and introduced at the price of one guinea by Cripps of Tunbridge Wells in 1842. Not easy to acquire and can be awkward to propagate as well as a bit of a fussy grower. Very, very pretty though, well worth any effort.

Demand always exceeds supply. Please note that cuttings, (if and when available), will be very small, this is a small, slow growing plant.

Tube: Short, white.

Sepals: White with green tips.

Corolla: Pure blue on opening, fades to purple violet.
