Can someone name this Fuchsia. Thank you




I don't go much for fuchsias and there are hundreds of varieties but it looks a bit like 'Lady Boothby' - there might be a fuchsia fancier who can offer other suggestions.

Such pretty flowers. Love that fuchsia.

I think it's probably Army Nurse or General Monk.
There are so many similar ones that it is very difficult to identify them.
Sorry but I don't think it's Lady Boothby. The flowers are not dark enough, and not the right shape.

At first I thought Beacon but that doesn't have the red markings on the petals. I don't think its double enough for Army Nurse Hywel?? I found Royal Purple, alias Dr Foster, and Bouquet is another possible. As Urbanite says there are so many, but I agree its not Lady Boothby.

I was just going over some of my questions and to my horror I see I had not said thank you to Urbanite, Alextb, Hywel, and Steragram for answering my enquiry on Fuchsia. I do apologised to all. I just don't know how that happened.

Don't worry about it. I didn't cry too much. I think we forgive you. LOL

Of course we do - and we couldn't agree on the answer anyway!
I have just found one called Herald that looks very like it.
