Is my fuchsia a trailing variety or a bush?

I bought two KinderGarden plug plants yesterday: Fuchsia Southern Belle Happy Wedding Days. They are described as bush and exactly what I want (I think).......but nearly every website I look at describes them as trailing (not what I want). Are there two varieties? Has "Southern Belle" got something to do with it? Advice appreciated.


  • They are described thus 
    "Fuchsia Southern belle ‘Happy Wedding Day’

    Although strictly speaking a bush fuchsia, ‘Happy Wedding Day’ does tend to have a slightly lax habit, with the heavy double flowers pulling the stems down. This can be viewed as a positive trait, as it means this fuchsia is good for hanging baskets as well as containers and the flower border."

    I have I have both of those, I don’t class them as trailing.

    Thank you for your interest and comments - and apologies for delay in replying. I found the recommended link very interesting (and am looking forward to seeing how my new plants turn out).
