Charlie Girl


'Charlie Girl' is a compact upright bush which weathered this late summers heat wave without a hint of burn. It was amazing, because I'd of thought big fluffy double blossoms would be the most prone to damage from the same heat that fried my roses. I'd like to repeat though, that often, whether or not a fuchsia or any other plant is able to deal with scorching weather without damage, is co-dependent on how healthy it's root system is. So quality of soil, nutrients, and water can be a decisive factor independent of the plants individual abilities to withstand extremes in weather. I am really looking forward to seeing how big this one can get.
