Year Introduced: 1988
A versatile and beautiful fuchsia with neat, richly coloured flowers. Spreading lax growth means it can be trained for hanging baskets if desired.
Self branching, so also makes a good container plant, where its tall, arching growths will show the dark, jewel-like flowers to good effect. A dark beauty.
