Fuchsia from Tresco

22nd July 2015

A very remarkable plant originally seen growing on Tresco but several people have introduced cuttings from there. Nobody can offer a better name, so it is currently circulating as "from Tresco". Typical single flowers with red sepals and a dark purple corolla, it resembles 'Lady Boothby' in having long scrambling shoots but grows very much larger. I have seen it climbing to 25ft tall through a large shrub and trained into a tall column of flower through a mature Cordyline. Magnificent thing, the leaves are quite glossy, unlike 'Lady Boothby'.
