'Duke of Wellington' is doing well so far. Not a fast grower compared to some. I know I say this often, since more than half of my collection were just 2" starts this spring and summer, but I am looking forward to see a full sized bush of these beautiful blooms. In almost every instance, I was purchasing "blind." All I knew was I was buying upright fuchsias with names that were not in the list of ones I already had :-). Even when they had printed labels with descriptions, it is almost impossible to guess at what the flower is going to look like. Fortunately, the digital age is making it easier to find out what to expect, so much easier!
