Regarding this plant: Fuchsia 'Elma'

I received this email:

Please be aware the fuchsia pictures shown in this entry entry are
incorrect. The one you list is not a small pink and white single but a
long tubed aubergine flower.
The correct picture can be found at the clay Lane Nursery website

I asked for more details and he responded with:

It is confusing because there are two Fuchsias called Elma.

The one whose pictures are on this page originated from Hendrik's in Holland
https://hendriksyoungplants.co...

And is a plant protected registration

The other which you have the details of on this site is an interspecific
hybrid, is here http://www.claylane-fuchsias.c...
ELMA (Van den Bergh 1990) Single. T - aubergine with green stripes. S -
aubergine with green
tips. C - bright aubergine to red.


What should we do here? It seems like we need to add a second entry for the "other" cultivar which also is named Elma. D'Oh!

Hi, Dave. I'll take care of this. There's actually only one fuchsia registered as Elma, and it's true that the description doesn't match Myriam's photos. The one on the Hendrik's site (the one matching her photos) was not registered under that name. I'll look into that some more, but for now I'll add a second 'Elma' entry for Myriam's photos.
