Don't believe the hype about this Fuchsia! It is not a climber - it just grows tall (about 2m) in a season. That said, I have found it to be hardy and it does well in containers in the semi shade. The flowers are an intense deep red/purple so this year I'm thinking of growing something much lighter (perhaps Helichrysum or Euonymous Silver Queen) behind them to set them off as they tend to get 'a bit lost' against the fence.

Fi asked for a photo. This is not ideal but it is the best I have of the whole plant. This was taken last July.

Thanks!

It's a lovely specimen. It could be used with underplanting to good effect with its height I should think.
You've inspired me to post a few pics too - though only digital so not great - it's lovely to share your hard work!
