'Voltaire' has that interesting flared skirt which makes some of the single fuchsias a bit different from the norm. It has a compact definite upright growth pattern and is always covered with flowers. Out in the full sun last summer, it did fine. And has done equally well this winter. Several other fuchsias were severely burned by freezing temps, but 'Voltaire' was among those which showed no evidence of there being a freeze.
