      Fuchsia

      One of my favorite types of plants. I especially like the upright varieties and I got
      a few new ones this year but I had to work to keep them from burning up in the +100* heat
      we had this summer. With fall approaching here they're looking much happier :

      It's didn't come out well in the pic but this variety is the only one I think I've ever seen
      that has an orange colored center flower. It's called Neon Tricolor...

      I love Fuchsia! It’s something I can’t seem to keep alive. I tried several times, but gave up. I always figured we have too much heat and humidity.
      Your is beautiful!

      Very pretty blooms and your plants look so healthy. You did well to keep them doing so well in that heat. Do you have humidity there? I have tried several times over the years and always thought it was the heat & humidity was the reason they didn't do well for me.

      Your is beautiful!
      I'm with you SouthernStarr. I keep seeing them in for sale in Home Depot and always try them but they never seem to do good for me. They are beautiful! Nice job growing them Steve! I'm jealous!
