Does anyone know what this fuchsia is called?

Not a great pic. It's blue and white only.  It is hardy - but  then we didn't have much of a winter last year!

Will try cuttings, but if I see a biggy in the CG that would be good too.

    Hi B3, could it be Sapphire or Fountains Abbey? Is it a double?  Might be Blue Lake?

    Thanks herb. Will Google those and compare. The blue bit is slightly swirly underneath so it might be a double.

    Trouble is they go in and out of fashion B3, so many varieties these days and my experience is a few years old. My husband was bonkers for them so I had to get good at growing them. There is a fuchsia database somewhere I believe, maybe, there used to be image but then you have to find someone who stocks them!

    That could be Blue Lake?

    Just found this http://fuchsiafinder.com/product-tag/picture/?orderby=date not the one my husband browsed but seems to have quite a few.

    Note on last post: Blue Lake appears to be called t Zoldertje now, go figure. Good luck and happy hunting image

    a bit like roses, tetley. I think a cutting is the best option. It's a nice subtle one.
