Gardeners' Notes:

Positive PedricksCorner On Jul 22, 2009, PedricksCorner from Freedom, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

My Billie Green, like all of my upright fuchsias, is growing out in the full sun almost all day long. It makes for denser growth and more flowers. I won't know until this winter, how well it deals with the freezes we get here. But he is listed at the Northwest Fuchsia Society as being winter hardy, so I am hopeful!

I have a question. Does anyone know if this variety is resistant to the Brazilian Fuchsia mite?

Thanks for any input.

(I'm tempted to try it.)

Neutral Baa On Feb 11, 2005, Baa wrote:

An upright Fuchsia which was bred in the UK that recieved an Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Bears many single, long tubed flowers with salmon pink sepals and corollas.

Flowers mainly from mid-summer to mid-autumn

Needs a well drained but moist soil in light shade. Like many Fuchsia cultivars it dislikes hot summers and full sun all day. Not very tolerant of frost.

Won't come true from seed but is very easily propagated by cuttings, preferably taken in the Spring prior to flowering.
