Black Magic

'Black Magic' is another beauty. I'm not usually fond of the doubles, but this one looks like it is going to be a vigorous and bushy upright. Not all fuchsia bushes take the same form. Some are very dense and bushy on their own, others need to be clipped because they put out such long branches. Those are the ones best suited for a large open space where they can show off how wide they can get :-) This one is putting out plenty of short upward branches on it's own. And the branches appear sturdy enough to handle the extra weight of these larger blossoms. Some double fuchsias tend to give under the weight and their branches get pulled sideways.

Plus this one is growing faster than most of the other starts purchased at the same time. So it is something to look forward to.
