Free flowering lax growth makes excellent hanging basket, pinch well for bush. Vigorous, prefers some shade, suits bedding.

Large, eye-catching flowers - 5cm (2") from top of tube to bottom edge of petals. This graceful fuchsia is a real beauty that stands out in any display. Absolutely gorgeous.

With Hawkshead as its seed parent, you would also expect some hardiness.

Tube: White, pale green base. Quite long, slim.

Sepals: White and pale pink veined, pale pink underside, pale green tips, slightly above horizontal.

Corolla: Rich lavender blue with pale pink base. Long, smooth, overlapping petals, unflared.

Parentage: Hawkshead x Venus Victrix.
