Look for this in catalogues under 'Roesse Blacky' The best 'black' fuchsia in my humble opinion.
Frost tender,flowers are borne from early summer to early autumn. Enjoys periodic balanced feeding during growing season. Keep in a sheltered position out of direct sunlight to get the best effect from the 'black' corolla. As the flower ages,the colour fades to a deep purple, but still a stunning hybrid.

NB!! I have found that this fuchsia does not like too much watering, far less than a normal hybrid! This also applies to another 'black' variety, "Hot Coals"
