'Astoria' is a bit unusual, at least out of the 209 members of my collection. The leaves have a grey tone to them I have never seen on any other fuchsia. So it's heritage has got me very curious! All I know is that it was introduced in 1960, but not who the hybridizer was! It is a very compact bush with the leaves growing close together along the stems. And they have a bit of a diamond shape to them. Very interesting...gonna be watching this one closely.
