    I've got Mrs Popple, I've had this in my garden since 2003 and it never lets me down. It is very hardy and flowers very well. I cut it back this time of the year and it quickly sends up new shoots. I love it.image

    Ricartonii and magellenica are words that spring to mind. I think one may be a cultivar of the other. They've been alive here for years. Alive, not thriving but I think that's down to my naff dry soil.

    Genii and Tom Thumb are dwarf hardy fuschias, Winston Churchill is also hardy, this is a larger growing one with double white centre and red outer petals. There is a lovely, small flowered very pale pink one, no idea what it is called so not much help.

    Fuschias like a fairly rich soil and prefer growing in cool or semi shaded situations. Having said that, my Winston Churchill is growing in one of the hottest summer corners in my garden, it was there when I moved in, that may be why it survives the winters, we do not have too much severe winter weather down here in the South West, it is fairly close to a drai so the ground is always damp.
