New favorite fuchsia.....
Okay; this is my first favorite fuchsia! Normally I don't like them all that much; they look like what interior decorators would come up with if they designed flowers to complement furniture.
But I picked up a "Lottie Hobby" at a neighborhood plant sale, and I'm totally in love. I have it hanging from the fire escape next to my back door, and sometimes I stick my head out the door to look at it and smile.
If you haven't seen it, it's a miniature (I guess). My plant is already about 18", but the leaves are tiny, and the flowers are teeny-tiny. I mean, like 1/4"! Perfectly formed little... well... fuchsia colored trumpets, with a touch of white.
Normally I'm not a fan of cute, but you gotta love a plant that makes you giggle!
