This is the fastest growing fuchsia I have ever grown besides Magelllanica alba. I was amazed at how fast it went from a cutting in April of 2008 to a full blown bush just a year later. Now I have it right next to my Magallanica and Voodoo, they make an awesome trio. It has never stopped blooming ever since it got big enough to start. It is listed by the Northwest Fuchsia Society as one of the hardier uprights they have winter tested.
