Madame Cornelissen

Ologila(z7 Ms.)May 27, 2004

Earlier this year I bought a bareroot Madame Cornelissen fuchsia from a mail order company, the information included in the magazine that I ordered from says that this fuchsia will grow to about 72 inches tall and wide so I planted it in the perfect location, however I have found other information on the web since then that says it will only grow to 24 inches tall and wide, if this is so, the place I planted it is not so perfect after all. Can anyone out there tell me which is correct? Thanks for any info.

Hi Ologila,
Here in my garden in the UK it grows to approx. 30 inches high, I've never heard of it growing to 72 inches high - Kath:)

Perhaps someone has mixed up inches and centimetres, 72cms approximates to 30 inches. Conversion factor 1 inch equals 2,54 centimetres.

Don't you just hate those foreign centimetres? What's wrong with good old feet and inches?
I voted to keep the 6d (a British joke), now how stupid was that?
