'Leslie' is a stunning upright fuchsia! Why toss out hanging basket fuchsias every year when an upright fuchsia can live to be over 100 years old? Of course the hanging baskets types can live just as long, but it is much more difficult to keep them happy in those small pots.
Did you know fuchsias make great long lasting cut flowers in arrangements? Can't do that with the trailing/hanging types either.
But both also do well as floated flowers in bowls of water or fountains!
