This is turning out to be a cute compact upright bush fuchsia with a very interesting corolla. If you look close, before it is open fuller, each petal seems to make a circle around it's stamen. I think the bush is going to look allot like Black Prince as it gets older. It is not yet listed by the Northwest Fuchsia Society as a winter hardy upright. But I hope they test it soon.
