Year Introduced: 2013
Lovely and elegant, hard to describe properly. Named after Nancy's sister, this not only has superb blooms, but also has unusually bright and attractive golden foliage. Holds its colour well in the sun and will make a good basket as well as a bush. This sister seedling to 'Mersty' is worth trying as a hardy too. Nancy's plant in the garden has come back vigorously and early for the last two years.
Nancy and her husband Arthur, do much to promote the fuchsia both in the UK and the US, look out for their 'Fuchsia Friends' stall at the RHS Malvern and other shows.
