Year Introduced: 2012
We are pleased to be able to offer this superb trailing fuchsia, hybridized by the late Jan Everett (pictured), and given to us by her husband Bernard.
A self branching habit, combined with a graceful double flower of very appealing form and soft colours should ensure its continued popularity for many years to come. Perfectly at home on the show bench, it only remains to be seen whether having Billy as a parent has added a degree of hardiness to its many other good qualities.
