Here is a new member to Bobs Garden, the Hardy Fuchsia. This hybrid is called 'Pat's Dream'. The tags reads its a cultivar that has escaped from the hanging basket, and taken its rightful place in the mixed border. The tag also mentions that it's hardy to zero to ten degrees (-17c to -12c) as well as it grows to 3 feet by 3 feet (roughly a meter by a meter). Having always been a fuchsia fan, I'll be anxious to see how it preforms. So far its bloomed for three months and is really flourishing in the shady location its planted in. I have met several gardeners in the area that have had great luck with Hardy Fuchsias, so I'll keep you posted on how well it does.
