FUSCHIA: Please can anyone offer some advice - Which Fuschia would be the hardiest, the most prolific flowering and must be red & white. I want to buy one for my friend and she says she has a few other colours but is never lucky with anything Red & White. Mine are all fine but I am not too well and can't go out doing cuttings, etc. I would value a few opinions on this. Thank you.



Snowcap, Connie, and Strawberry Delight, are hardy Fuchsias with red and white flowers.

Connie and S. Delight have double flowers,

and S. Delight also has bronzy coloured foliage - it's very pretty.

There is also "Madame Cornelissen" (which I have just planted)

Alice Hoffman is red and white but slower coming into flower than some.

THANK YOU ALL so very much. I can buy a Fuschia with confidence now by just phoning the Garden Centre. Having just written that though, I maybe will sit in the car in their car park and get my friend to bring one out to show me first before I pay for it!! I am a control freak I know. However, thank you for putting firmly in my mind which variety will be just right. Grateful to you for your support. x
