Fuchsia 'Dollar Princess'

6th November 2011

A nostalgic addition to the border, I first grew it as a teenager (and didn't really like it). Somehow time has softened my opinion and I am quite enjoying it now. It is fairly hardy so I may get a few more years to consider my opinion.
It makes a small rather upright bush and I find the stems rather brittle but perhaps I just don't take the care I should.
Raised in Germany and introduced in 1912 it is still one of the best hardy doubles.
