Hi alper1, Welcome! to ATP.

I'm not really sure to which plant you're referring. Is it freesia, by any chance?

Do you mean the fuchsia named Sir Alf Ramsey? If so, I can't find any current source for it. Sorry.

Hi alper1.

The only plant cultivar I could find named for coach Sir Alf (Alfred Ernest) Ramsey is the lavender Dahlia.

No, we have two in our database -- the fuchsia and the dahlia:

Lady's Eardrops (Fuchsia 'Sir Alf Ramsey')

Informal Decorative Dahlia (Dahlia 'Sir Alf Ramsey')

My apologies, Zuzu. It should read : The only "other" plant cultivar.....
