Fuchsia boliviana ‘Alba’

First blooms a one of my Bolivian Fuchsias. I started them from seed last summer.

I have some just germinating, but I doubt that I'll get a result as quickly as you!

Meanie:

Randalsd:

It looks great! I know this shrub grows super fast.

I see your coffee tree in the background. My tall coffee tree is still trying to come back from its unknown issues.

This is the second Fuchsia that I've grown from seed now..........

Hi Meanie / Delonix1,

These really do grow fast, I was surprised. Just transplanted them from gallon to 5 gallon pots (they were quite over sized for the containers). Bolivian Fuchsias also have a very nice large leaf foliage, the scale is much larger then a standard Fuchsia.

Glad to hear the seeds are finding their way around.

Thanks to you, my friend!

I sent Meanie some of the seeds you gave me last year.

How long did it take for the seeds to germinate for you?

Mine have only just started to germinate so that's good news!

Strangely the other that I've grown from seed is one of the smallest in every sense - F.procumbens.

I'm don't remember exactly how long they took them to germinate, think it was within a couple of weeks. I had other batches of seeds planted at the same time so I guess I didn't keep track.

Wow, that F.procumbens is a small Fuchsia with vary unusual flowers, blue pollen!

Meanie:

F. procumbens is very interesting looking! It look doesn't look like a Fuchsia at all.

Randallsd:

Thanks for the information! I'll have to plant my seeds and date them.

Randall - here is my other Fuchsia with blue pollen........

Delonix - did I not send you seeds for F.procumbens? I'll see if I have any left and put them in with the others.

23 Jun, 2012

 

Meanie:

No, I was left off the list for the F. procumbens seeds. lol

By the way, my Eranthemum pulchellum (Blue Sage) plant did not set seed. I've read this plant rarely sets seeds. :>(

I'll add them to the others............

Thanks! :>)
