Northway


'Northway' is a relatively small and compact upright bush. Like 'Black Prince' and 'Marin Glow' in it's form. It just occurred to me that the three of them placed nearby each other would be a nice combination, I am going to have to move them in the spring! The description used for 'Northway' doesn't mention orange, but to me, when this bush is covered with these blossoms in the spring and summer, they have a dark orange tinge to them. The weather and the amount of sun a fuchsia gets, can have a dramatic affect on how dark the colors are and even the size of the blossoms. Not enough sun, and the colors will be lighter. Too much sun, and the flowers will be much smaller than normal. 'Northway' is another one of my favorites.
