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!

I like my Lye's Unique a lot, though I've just started getting different varieties, so who knows who will be my fav in the end!

RE: New favorite fuchsia.....

I fell in love with fuschia the first time I saw it. However I can't seem to find any.. Would any of you happen to want to give me a cutting?

RE: New favorite fuchsia.....

Nevermind about the cutting. I am already getting one. but I like the Blue Lace Fuchsia best.

RE: New favorite fuchsia.....

I'm so glad you found some. Unfortunately, I lost my Lottie Hobbie by the end of the summer. (Went on vacation in August and came back to find everything burned to a crisp!) But I'll be looking for some soon.....
