Ain't She Sweet


'Ain't She Sweet' is going to be one of my favorites, I just know it! I have a particular fondness for the small and simple flowers. Just imagine a big bush full of these. This is another one which will be a learning adventure. How big will this one get? We will find out.

I am going to be trying my hand at bonsai with fuchsias and I think ones with the smaller flowers will do best. One thing people don't get to appreciate who only grow hanging baskets, is the fascinating texture and colors of the bark which forms on well developed trunks of the older fuchsia bushes. A characteristic that will lend itself to making interesting bonsai specimens.
