Hi Eddie,
Gartenmeister fuchsias should be available from specialist growers/nurseries/garden centers. Gartenmeister fuchsias are Triphylla fuchsias and very frost tender.

I recently saw "Gartenmeister" carried in Home Depot, but I'm in Texas, so........


RE: help me find this fuschia

I bought one at a local nursery. I just love the color of it! This is a pic of it in a combo pot that I threw together. It also contains lamium "Beacon Silver" and heuchera "Amber Waves".

Hi chicken lady - I have that fuschia - it is the ''african Queen''. I traded for mine last fall. It, just finished blooming. Maybe ,I can root a piece for you.

RE: help me find this fuschia

Regarding "Gartenmeister", the correct name is 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt' and it is orange red with a definite bulge in the tube. It is often confused with 'Thalia' which is lighter and less of a bulge. The photo of that beautiful mixed planting looks like 'Traudchen Bonstedt', a lighter orange.

Earthworks is great; Monnier is sadly out of business, but try Fry Rd. Nursery.
