An upright Fuchsia that may grow to between 2′ and 3′ tall. Other sites claim 12″ tall and 18″ wide. Time will tell on that one. I am guessing the former since it is claimed to be a good one for doing a standard. Double deep pink sepals with purple black petals adorn this plant from early summer through the late fall. The black fades a little as the flower matures and ends up a reddish purple.
Full sun to light shade. Regular water but well-drained soil. This Fuchsia is a little more tender than some others.
Easy to propagate from stem cuttings.
Syn: Fuchsia ‘Roesse Blacky’

One is along Tuxedo lane as it transitions into Whimsey Way, one the left almost under the fence line. The other is in a pot that can br brought in over winter until its hardiness is fully assessed.
