Neutral Leehallfae On Aug 31, 2009, Leehallfae from Seattle, WA wrote:

New Millenium Fuchsia dose have darker than usual flowers. They're dark pink/purple. The plant is 15 inches tall and 30 inches wide. It is neither an upright nor a trailing fuchsia. It is more of a groundcover.

It is hardy in Zone 8b, but suggest storing it in a covered basement for the first two winters. After it is planted into the ground, one might wish to add mulch if the winters are severe, that is below 30F for a few days.

The double black purple corolla on this variety just took my breath away! It is listed by FindThatFuchsia as being one of those that can be either a trailer or and upright bush. I plan on encouraging it to be an upright bush via proper pruning. It appears to have a dense growth pattern.
