Year Introduced: 1968
A superb and enduringly popular basket fuchsia. Very easy to grow, also seems to have some natural resistance to pests.
Largely self branching, but can be pinched to produce even more flowers. Starts early and produces many naturally anyway, showing how a fuchsia with smaller flowers in quantity usually gives a better and longer display than one with fewer, larger blooms.
Tube: Pink, faint stripes, quite stout.
Sepals: White, faint pink base, tiny green tip, also quite solid for their size. Held horizontal and well recurved.
Corolla: Rich purple, matures lavender, 1/2 flared, some folded petals.
