The name says it all really. One of the longest flowers you can expect to see on a fuchsia. Growth is slender and requires as much pinching out as you can manage, also if you can provide some support for the longer stems it can help. Not an easy fuchsia to shape, but gives a superb display in whatev..
Flowers profusely, and gives a superb display, especially when grown outside as much as possible, weather permitting. Does need some initial good pinching to encourage extra flowering shoots and keep to a reasonable size, grows vigorously.Chang has been grown and loved by gardeners around the world..
This lovely old cultivar is fairly slow growing, stiffly upright and compact. It took us a long time to obtain it, we can safely say its reputation for being slow and difficult to root from cuttings is fully justified. We too, will have very few available. Not particularly easy to grow either. ..
Gorgeous, unusually coloured flowers appear later in the season than most. They look superb against the dark green foliage, and keep going for a long time. Makes a lovely pot or small container fuchsia.Likes to spread by underground stolons. More of a herbaceous sub-shrub than a small woody shrub l..
A truly sumptuous giant double from the Monniers, but without any coarseness; it is a refined and beautiful flower. If we had to guess, we'd say it was so named because of the way it looks from below. You see a distinctly square outline, with a mass of white petals, rather like a 3D lacy tableclo..
Unlike Countess of Aberdeen, Eleanor Leytham is much easier to root from cuttings. We’re rather glad about that, because this is a gorgeous fuchsia that’s usually hard to find. But just like that redoubtable old lady, her more modern daughter still won’t tolerate overwatering, (or full sun) and need..

Uncommon, subtle colours and unusually shaped flowers. More sensitive to over watering and over potting than most.Sometimes wrongly known as Lechlade Marchioness.

This challenging fuchsia looks fantastic when a mature plant. Has profuse, tubular flowers that last and last, sometimes more than three weeks. Not easy, and slow to grow, but gives a wonderful reward to those who succeed.Named after the German physician Leonhart Fuchs (1501 - 1566), who was one of ..

Delightful, similar size and habit to its parent, but not quite as hardy, particularly when young. Young plants with their very thin stems will appreciate a little extra protection to get them through their first winter or two. Needs a rather more clement spot than most. Fabulous foliage plant that ..

Spectacular flowers in terminal clusters, handsome foliage, and fairly tuberous roots. This is a real beauty, but somewhat awkward and slow, repaying patience and care.
