Year Introduced: 1996
A true trailing and creeping fuchsia that will weep down over tall containers or hang down from baskets easily up to 3ft (90cm) or more. Self branching, but flowering only on old wood, not current season's growth like most fuchsias.
Doesn't produce a huge amount of flowers, but still an ornamental and interesting plant. Very easy to grow and propagate.

Sepals: Same as tube above, yellow green 144A/dark peach 179C below, short, small, fully up, recurved.
Corolla: There isn't one.
Foliage: Mid green, small heart shaped (cordate) leaves.
Parentage: F. perscandens x F. procumbens.
