I bought two of these from Joy Creek Nursery, where the variety is described as an upright shrub, three feet tall by four feet wide. Ha! It is a vine, apparently the first vining fuchsia. Eager grower, though, and nice flowers. You just have to plan on it falling victim to gravity and give it something to climb on. Something fairly tall. A good case for accurate plant description, but that's a dream.
