Blue Flame


'Blue Flame' is one of the compact uprights that can be counted on to provde a crown of lots of little flowers on a relatively small bush compared to how large some can get. There are actually species of fuchsia that grow to heights of over 40' feet. Yes, forty feet high fuchsia trees!! One lady in the forums at DavesGarden.com remarked that a friend of hers from Brazil told her they use fuchsia wood as firewood and she wasn't sure she could believe her! But it is true.
And then there are the little guys like Blue Flame :-) What a range, huh?
The specimen in this photo is just getting started and was only a 2" start two months before.
