Dancing Stars

'Dancing Stars' believe it or not, is going to be at least a three to four foot high bush when it is mature. The Northwest Fuchsia Society lists it as both a winter hardy and a heat hardy fuchsia. And I know the hummingbirds and bees are going to love it. People like those big puffy flowers, but those are hard for the bees and hummingbirds to access and rarely have anything to offer the hummingbirds. So they tend to frequent the simpler flowers the most. The blue flower in this photo, for comparison, is a 'Forget-Me-Not'. It is going to be a interesting turn of events when this bush is large enough for a bed of 'Forget-Me-Nots' beneath it!
