No mistaking this one , a lovely and very hardy one!

Thanks, PP. Yes, it is hardy but in the ground, not so easy to keep them through the winter in plastic pots though!

Yes Balcony can see that would be a problem, mine is in the ground and came through the severe winter last year.

I'm glad for you that you were able to keep it alive in spite of our terribly cold winter. Hope I'll be able to report success next spring as well.

All time favourite Swingtime....such a beauty, and the one to the left is that Starwars Balc? I took some pics this afternoon of a few fuchsias still flowering, they haven't been as good as last year though.

It is a real beauty alright but the one behind it isn't Star Wars I'm afraid I thank it is Delta's Sarah. The labels on the 4 pots I bought of it in May 2009 said it was Miss California, but neither the photo on the label nor the description fit the plant! But I like it whatever it's called! It sooo reminds me of a ballerina with her hands above her head!

This poor thing died during the terrible winter of 2010-11 along with many others of my plants.

It's very difficult to keep lots of plants through the winter if you haven't got the proper facilities.

I can't bring them inside the flat or there wouldn't be room for us two! The plants I try to conserve during the winter are kept in a mini-greenhouse on the balcony table in the most protected corner of the balcony. Some make it though but others don't.
