Did I imagine it?

Hi, can anyone help please? I am sure I have seen on Gardenweb a fuchsia called "Northumbrian Pipes" or "Northumberland Pipes" but cannot find it again. As a member of the Northumbeland Pipers Society it would make a great gift next year!

Hi Frankie

I am not sure where you saw any information regarding the fuchsia you are looking for, but I have found the following for you;

Description:

NORTHUMBRIAN PIPES
Small single - lax upright. Tube and sepals light aubergine, corolla light lavender. Very attractive flowers with long tubes.

For photograph see link at bottom of this post.

Thanks for an amazing link! I never imagined fuschias
in ORANGE!!! The Snowstorm variety is stunning.
Are ALL of these available--even to us breakaways (i.e.
here across the puddle)?

Hi DF,
Re: Are all of these availale across the puddle? - Wish that were true :) We have some that never reach the US and visa versa.

Re: Orange Fuchsias, there are many cultivars, uprights and trailers that are orange, also many of the triphylla types (long tubular flowers).

This is a nice trailer, orange/white called 'Orange Blossom'
