'Aintree' 2012

'Aintree' is so white it is hard to get a good photo, but I will certainly try again!  The bright "rose" pink of the corolla is what most people think of when they hear a color described as "fuchsia".  But as you can see from other posts here, pinning down a color for the word fuchsia should be anything but simple!
This is a young bush, and as it grows I will prune it to stay off of the ground.  I'd like to plant a low growing ground cover under the bushes, but for now, it is more important to keep a watchful eye for any gopher activity.  So the ground will be kept bare until this winter when a heavy layer of hay for mulch will be laid down.
