Anyone know this so PINK leafed fuchsia?

Northern California, CA(Zone 9b)

I am in love. I cannot find this one online. It was tagged Fuchsia regiavarialpeshis. I saw Fuchsia regia subsp. regia on PF but it obviously is not the same one.

I separated this name Fuchsia regiavarialpeshis too while googling to Fuchsia regia var alpeshis.

Sue, you find me wherever I go! No secrets from you!

Dick, I am really assuming it is a new cultivar. I saw it at a botanical garden recently dug in.

Had I mentioned the leaves felt like velvet?

I think it could be F. alpestris. But I still think that one has a problem. If you look at other red or pink tinged leaves that are healthy, you'll see the difference.

I was back at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Garden and visited this fuchsia again. The tag is Fuchsia regia var. alpestris so it is naturally occurring but different than Fuchsia regia. It was a beautiful PINK but still leafing out after a cold winter. Just a gorgeous fuchsia I am sure when it gets more leaves.
