Diff between fuchsias, whiteknights pearl & mag var alba


Please would you help me recall which of my fuchsias is Whiteknights Pearl & which is mag var Alba?


I cant find images side by side / in the same light, so google isnt helpful!


One has slightly larger, darker, more serrated edged leaves, with a pinker flower, the other has a tinge of purple to the flower. But both pretty similar!


Sorry cut and paste isnt working but if anyone is kind enough to google on techiebabe fuchsia you should find a pic I posted to twitter.


Any help welcome! Thanks in advance image

    Hi techiebabe - you can't cut & paste pics onto this forum, but if you click on the tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post you can upload pics from a pc.

    Sadly it doesn't work for phones .... yet  image

    I discovered the other day one or two fuchsia blooms peaking out from a Spotted Laurel bush in our front garden. Not wanting the laurel, I dug this out today and removed the fuchsia. It may be Fuchsia magellanica Alba or 'Whitenights Pearl' as they appear very similar in my books. They must be old as the roots were great big gnarly things but I've trimmed off the dead parts and seperated them into two plants, so hopefully, in a brighter spot with some space around them, a bit of TLC should see them flourish next year.
