Cloverdale Star

'Cloverdale Star' is one more good example of how fuchsias change colors remarkably as the flowers open. It is the blue tinge to the skirt of this simple blossom that I like the most. The color is called "wisteria blue." But it is a fleeting blue, as you can see from the photo below. When fully open, they are pink. This little bush is a compact grower which I am sure will get much bigger and the trunk matures. I am looking forward to the show it is going to put on when it is big enough to be covered in both the new and the mature blossoms at once!
