Fuchsia magellanica arauco

Fuchsia magellanica arauco
A very choice naturally occurring form of the popular hardy species with finely crafted flowers on a delicate small leaved shrub. The flowers are typical slender violet and red magellanica, but the sepals are white giving a very classy effect – not even slightly garish.
Fuchsia magellanica arauco
Like most magellanicas this is hardy and adaptable but seems less heat and drought tolerant than most Fuchsias.
£10

Fuchsia magellanica arauco right, and Lady Bacon. The latter is very similar but paler in foliage and slightly larger in all its parts. I should have some later in the year
