F. magellanica 'chile'

Sometimes trying to verify the identity of a plant can be quite a journey!  I know this is Fuchsia magellanica 'chile' as it was given to me by a very knowledgeable source.  I can see from my photo of it's flower and another one of it's unique foliage, that it is different from any of the other magellanica's.  Of which there are over 30 variations.  But only about 15 of those have photo documentation available on the internet.
But until I can get verification from a documented source, this one can't be added to the PlantFiles database of, and this is one reason why I respect their database.
So now I need to search for this verification!
