Please help me ID

I just bought this plant which I believe could be a fuchsia. Here are some photos.

I wonder if it will trail. Could someone please help with an ID.

Many thanks.

I'm thinking this could be Cuphea. If so, it doesn't trail for me, it's a bush about 18' high. Really like it.

So, it's not a trailing fuchsia? Well, I'm a bit disappointed, though :-(

Thank you very much for helping me out, Rose.
