I bought this fuchsia 'Maiden's Blush' back in the early 90's from a Lamb's nursery that is now gone. It list this as nearly white but mine has never been even close to white it is pink! very pink. Each year it dies to the ground and start to grow from the ground up and get to about 4 ft tall for me. Coverd in small pink flowers from mid June to frost.
