'Blue Eyes' is often grown as a hanging basket, but I've grown it as an upright bush in the ground. And without much pruning, it has filled in a low space very well. It's about two feet tall now and as it's trunk ages, I expect it to get to about three feet. 'Blue Eyes' has a bit more shade than most of my collection because it is surrounding on three sides by taller varieties of upright fuchsias, but it hasn't gotten weak or leggy. Best of all, it has never sustained any damage from freezing winter temperatures which have occasionally damaged others.
