'Duchess of Albany' is absolutely breathtaking at a full bush in bloom. What can I say? Mine is about two years old now and is huge. It puts out big long thick branches like 'Cardinal' does, but even thicker. You may have noticed that I changed my profile photo to a vase of fuchsias sitting on my fence. That is because they make great cut flowers.
Something most people might not ever think of because most people think of hanging baskets when they think of fuchsias. But many fuchsias can put out grow to rival any rose bush! And the flowers last just as long in a vase as roses do.
Next spring, I will also show my fuchsias as cut flower arrangements. Especially the 'Duchess of Albany.'
