President Leo Boullemier

'President Leo Boullemier' is living up to it's classification on many lists as being a very cold hardy upright fuchsia. Not a fast grower, but then I added this one to my collection late in the summer and maybe it is getting ready to surprise me. Meanwhile, wow, what a name! I need to Google this person to see what comes up. There are a number of fuchsias named after heads of state from various countries. Which is not unusual in the flower world. Numerous roses are named after American presidents and movie stars. But I would have expected a big showy flower for a presidents name. This cute little number looks like the skirts of a twirling dancer!
