Walz Bella

'Walz Bella' is an interesting fuchsia. The corolla and sepals are a bit different than most others. One would guess that the long sepal means a Triphylla may have been in the parentage. But the flower is much wider and stouter than most Triphylla hybrids. This is a vigorous upright bush which does very well in the heat of summer. This winter though, it was very damaged by the freezes which also damaged other Triphylla hybrids. It is growing out of it very well though. This one tends to grow dense and to the sides more than straight up. It could fill in a large spot easily.
