Billy Green Fushia

janice__indiana5(Z5 Indiana)May 7, 2008

For a couple years now I have admired a picture torn from a magazine. The picture is of a flower pot filled with flowers hummingbirds love. Smack dab in the middle is a Billy Green fushia. Does anyone know a source for this Fushia? If not, how about a similar fushia I could substitute. Thanks for any help!

Thanks A... I had already found a source when you posted. It's too bad though, the sites you posted were much cheaper.

Dave I plan on growing it as an annual.

Thanks again,
