I tossed all my fuchsias in the last 2 months! All were so contorted with mite damage. I was so sick of spraying. I decided never ever to buy another one no matter how beautiful! I even had fuchsia mites on 2 kinds that are mite resistant.

Then yesterday I got suckered in, LOL! So fast. It wasn't till I got home that I remembered my solemn oath never to buy another.

I am hoping these will truly be fuchsia mite resistant.

I have had this one in the past and must have killed it for it is no more. But it is so pretty I had to get it again.

This is the one for which I need an ID. It is a Fuchsia denticulata hybrid. Anyone know if it was named? My pictures do not do it justice. It is a very dark PINK one with a whitish glass glaze over the PINK color over the corolla tube.

The seed pod is round. I need to figure out how they like to be sowed. They were with many other types of resistant mite fuchsias so they might be all hybrids.

First, I'm just so excited you posted on the Fuchsia forum, Kell! I want to see more Fuchsias, peeps!
Second, was that a little baby mite I saw in the first picture? JUST JOKING! All my fuchsias became toast here in W. Houston. I'm not sure if they had disease or bugs or just hated the weather. I had them in shade, full sun, partial sun...I guess I could treat them as annuals but I feel like they are so pretty, it's a shame to sentence them to death... :)
Hope someone (HEY PC!) can help you with the ID. Good luck with them!

That is a beautiful fuchsia Kell, makes me want one! I have a couple of varieties that haven't bloomed yet for me, which are denticulata hybrids. I just got them a few weeks ago. Maybe one of them will turn out to be the same as yours!
