Looking good, DD! I didn't realize that it was climber till now! Is it an annual climber? If it is I may get some seeds for the balcony next year. How high can it climb? Irrelevant in a way I suppose as I've only got about 2 metres of height on the balcony!

How long have you had your climbing Fuchsia? How high can it grow? My 'Lady Boothby' is well over a metre & a half tall this year! It doesn't show any sign of slowing down yet either!

Balcony we had it a couple of years, there are two in that border.. I sent for another variety and it turned out to be the same is not very floriferous, going to look around as there are more climbing ones out now, and more flowers than LB......the terracotta head is just a pot. I like large pots. and love the heads adds a bit of character to the pergola...and they don't need anything planted in them!
Thanks Delonix....

Will it live through winter there? It's so beautiful, it would be a shame for it to die in winter.

I agree that they are a little late to bloom but worth the effort anyway.
