Ain't She Sweet

Like 'Abby Rose', this one could cascade over a wall or edge of a large container. It can also be pruned into an upright form like I have. Just remember that fuchsias can live for over 100 years. But not if they are planted into small hanging baskets with little room for a big healthy root sytem. Over the years they develope thick trunks covered with very interesting bark. Which is one reason they also make very interesting bonsai. One must be careful when selecting varieties for bonsai though. You don't want one of the faster growing cultivars!
