Bashful Lady is not yet listed by the Northwest Fuchsia Society as a winter hardy, so I also don't know how tall she is expected to get. So far, she appears to be a compact upright. I grow all of my fuchsias in the full sun, so they bloom more and they grow denser than they would in the shade. Even so, it is easy to see which ones are going to grow straight up and which ones may be a lower, mounding type of bush, like Bashful Lady. What I like the most about her is the double red corolla against the white sepals. Very pretty.
