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;


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.

This plant is available mail order from:

Hope this helps

RE: Did I imagine it?

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)?

RE: Did I imagine it?

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).
Have a look here:- copy-paste into your browser

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