A very elegant fuchsia, Lady Bacon has an airy growth habit, and small leaves.

Named after the keen lady gardener who we are told discovered it in Chile. Wonderful display from many single flowers. These are slightly bigger, and have more substance, than those of F. magellanica, of which it is probably a hybrid.

Does better planted in the garden than in a pot. If in a pot, take particular care to ensure that the roots are kept cool and shaded. It will quickly die if they overheat.

Tube: Pink and rose, medium, thin.

Sepals: Rose to white with tiny green tips, slim, 1/2 down.

Corolla: Violet, white at base, little or no flare, smooth, overlapping petals.
