Wonderful Photo PC This Fuchsia is a must in the garden here in the PNW. They get very tall and Hummers love them. I look forward to having one in my garden next year.

The one thing I'll miss terribly here in Kentucky is that I can not have fuchsias. In Calif I had over 30 fuchsia and showed them at the local fair and flower shows. I really liked the minitures and I was trying to hybridize a mini just for the fun of it. Maybe I'll be able to build a greenhouse in the next couple of years and than I can have my fuchsias.
