Iced Champagne


'Iced Champagne' is a heat wave champion! And that is unusual because white flowers of any kind are known for being easily damaged. So although white flowers can be beautiful, I rarely grow any in my garden because of that. This photo doesn't really pick up the subtle creamy pink tinge these blossoms have. It is a compact bush that puts out allot of blossoms all at once. Unlike most of my other fuchsias though, it is one that tends more towards all or nothing. By that I mean, instead of a variety of buds, flowers, and berries all at once in various stages, this one tends to have all buds, then all flowers, then all berries. But it doesn't hesitate to constantly repeat the cycle all year long.
