'Coachman' is doing so much better here in our new location that it practically seems like a whole different fuchsia. It had been in way too much shade and had been weak, with thin stems that barely supported it's blossoms. Making me think it may not be an upright at all.
Here it is now though, growing straight up, with thick sturdy stems supporting these beautiful salmon and red flowers.
The brown twigs in the background of many of my new photos are what remains of the trunks of the bushes before they froze after the move this past winter. I am leaving them in the first photos of each variety this year, to show people that fuchsias can and will come back up after freezing to ground level.
