Covers itself in flowers and keeps on doing so. A truly lovely fuchsia. Regarding the capitalisation of the prefix, the breeder, Henk Waldenmaier states:
“Until 2001, all my cultivars bore the name prefix WALZ. WALZ is an acronym composed of the first letters of the surnames of the grandparents of my children. It must therefore use all capital letters and be written together.”
