Thats a pretty one and such a lot of buds waiting to open!

This is the best of the 2 standards but I don't know what it's called. I've grown it on my balcony for almost as long as we've lived in this flat - 8 years in November - though this standard is about 5 years old, perhaps more.

For a while I thought it might be Dollar Princess, from the picture on the name label of the new plants I bought this year, but once both began to flower I noticed differences that show they are different varieties. Dollar Princess is a bigger, more blowsy flower, the flowers are very similar in colour at first but DP gradually becomes paler whereas the flowers on my standards are the same colour from opening till when they fall off.

There are quite a few Fuchsia experts on Goy if you put an "Identification please needed" Im sure someone will be able to tell its name!

Well I've been uploading photos of this Fuchsia for months & nobody has told me what it might be! Although I haven't actually asked! I'll do it all the same.

My baskets with all the Fuchsias I planted back in May are looking a treat now! It's really difficult to get a photo that does them justice! In the next week or so I'll upload a few more photos of them.

Have you seen the Thalia in the basket with the tomato plant I uploaded a few days ago? All 5 baskets have Thalia flowering in them, as I put 1 plant of Thalia in the centre of each of the baskets.
