Fuchsia 'Versicolor'

8th August 2006

28th July 2007

A sensational Fuchsia for the garden. I bought a rooted cutting in 1976, and have had it ever since. I root cuttings and then when they get too big for the pots, I plant them out around the place without thought. Under the Eucalyptus they grow into wonderful loose grey mounds punctuated with little white variegations. These plants were lying around in the way for a couple of years before I planted them behind the herbaceous border where the foliage is a rich dusky pink in the sun and flowers drip from the branches for most of the year.
