I have always loved fuschia and thought I could not grow them here.
But I already have some plants that winter in the unheated (but warmer than outside) basement.
Now I know that I can!
My challenge will be to find the ones that DON'T have pink on them!
I know there are a few, but it will be a search!

Hello ???

The nearest one that I have bred to be pure white is this one. But even this has a tinge of pink if put in the sun.The trick is to grow it in pure shade.

I know. LONGSHOT! Hilarious!

I'm pretty sure there's a red one that's almost hardy here.
And I've seen photos of some that are a redder color on the top and purple on the bottom.
Purple is good.
I like purple.

If you like reds. How about this one of my releases. I don't know if it's available in the US.

YES!

I like the shape of the flowers, and the fact that they attract hummingbirds!

I started going through the ATP database and found more than I expected.
Many of them are upright, but that's ok.
I'm sure I'll find some trailing ones too.
