Once mistakenly called Fuchsia 'Pink Lena', the flowers are indeed similar to those of Fuchsia 'Lena' but in pink. The sepals are pink with green tips that recurve upward sharply. Their reverses are pink and green-tipped as well. The corolla is also pink, but brighter and cleaner in color. Indeed, the base of the corolla is an even richer color. Even the flower tube is pink with vertical ribbing. The stamens extend more than a half-an-inch beyond the lip of the corolla. In habit, this is somewhat trailing.

Summer to autumn.  2 ft. x 2 ft.

In the maritime Pacific Northwest, we grow hardy Fuchsias in full sun where they bloom non-stop from late spring to first frost. In hotter climates, we recommend giving Fuchsias protection from the afternoon sun. Fuchsias make wonderful subjects containers and for the mixed border.
