Burgundian


'Burgundian' is a fast growing, vigorous upright bush. In contrast, Scarlet O'Hara is much slower and denser. Walz Gigolo is slower also and with blossoms about half the size of Burgundian. All three have this rich red wine coloration to them. But are three very different flowers and bushes. Each with it's own special qualities. You can see why this one is named after the Burdundy region of France. All of the upright fuchsia bushes in my collection grow out in the full sun for most of the day. Occasionally, it gets hot enough to even toast my roses, so I can't be surprised when some fuchsia blossoms get singed also. Burgundian made it through this summers heat waves with flying colors! Not a singed leaf or blossom.
