I grew this plant for the first time last year (from seed) and I will never be without it again. It grew happily in containers on the patio, was an insect magnet and smelt wonderful. The dark foliage is a wonderful contrast for many plants and this year I'll be trying it next to French Lavender.

Cherry Pie

Reply from Fi

Hi Georgie, did you know this was an old victorian plant they used to call cherry pie? Due to its scent, it's lovely honey sweet. It seems to have come back into fashion as I found lots of little plants in my local nursery and will go back and get some I think. It was a choice between Lemon Verbena, a nostalgic smell from childhood, or Heliotrope - lv won this time, planted next to my bench!
Have you got a pic of your Fuschia by the way?

Hi Fi. I knew the common name was 'Cherry Pie' but didn't know it was back in fashion. I can't imagine why it ever went out of fashion, it's so lovely.

There is a picture in the plant database of my Fuchsia Lady Boothby - click on the photo tab. It's just a single bloom, 'though. I'm not certain if I have a photo of the whole plant but if I do I'll upload it.
