I like Dollar Princess for it's sun hardiness and it's cute little double blossoms. Small like the singles, but double like the big guys! Kind of like a mini Voodoo or Gypsy Prince. And so many of them at once! The stems are a bit thin, but it is a young plant and I am sure they will get stronger with age.

Just picked this up at Lowes. Came from El Modena Gardens. The grower lists it as Partial Sun, Water Regularly, Rapid Growth, Cold Hardiness to 32 degrees F, Average Height x Width as 2' - 3'. All summer color to brighten up a shady area. Will be interesting to see what kind of high temps it can tolerate here in SW Utah (St. George).
Just a gorgeous plant, couldn't pass it up.

I grew this in a mostly shady spot in a container with lobelia and oxalis. The flowers were very attractive, despite being very heavy and bending the stems under their weight. What I was impressed by was its tolerance to flooding. I had it in a container without drainage holes, and it was repeated filled with water by an underground sprinkler head. While its companions died, the fuchsia kept on blooming.
