I love Quasars double blue corolla! The photo I added shows off one of my favorite qualities of the fuchsia's in general, and that is how they change so much in their color as the corolla opens more fully. Sometimes it can seem as though it is an entirely different cultivar. Quasar doesn't have to be a hanging basket. And will live for many more years if kept in a larger pot on the ground, or planted into the ground itself. It will not only spill over the sides of a container, it will grow into a low mounding bush.

This is a beautiful container/basket Fuchsia. It has an abundance of giant blooms throughout the summer through to October. This is my first year growing giant Fuchsia so I am busy taking cuttings which I root in water then transplant to a 3" pot. I shall have to wait and see if I can successfully keep them all over the winter.
