Variegated Fuchsias?

I was curious if anyone grows variegated Fuchsias and has pictures to post.

I'm also looking for one, the variegated Fuchsia procumbens, sometimes called 'Mary Miller'. Since there's no exchange forum, I guess I need to mention it here.

I just bought my first variegated Fuchsia today: Fuchsia 'Firecracker' (F. triphylla) at Roger Reynold's Nursery in Menlo Park, CA. It was $5. I was really impressed with the variegation of this variety.

A view from the side, so you can see the coloration on the underside of the leaves:

I do have Fuchsia procumbens, which is small and new, but opened a flower today:

I give a link below to a picture of the variegated F. procumbens, which I would be interested in trading for. I have a few other Fuchsias (F. denticulata, F. boliviana Alba, F. procumbens, F. bacillaris F. 'First Success') as well as a number of other plants.

I also want to again mention that I have a F. boliviana Alba that is producing lots of berries. I can send a berry (or maybe two) for postage. Each has a couple hundred seeds, I think.

RE: Variegated Fuchsias?

I just wanted to mention that I picked up Fuchsia procumbens variegata from Earthworks, for $3.25. I was very happy with the plant and with the fact they charge so little for shipping.

I ordered it along with 'Orange Queen' and the total bill was only $12.
