Such a nice blast of color for a semi-shady bed.

I'd been wondering what kind of flowers those were. Thanks :)

Thanks very much for the pics... I love those. They look like the ones outside our old office building, which I especially liked. Pretty, pretty flowers.

Curious: Are they upright growing fuchsias? How are they in containers? Do you think they'd grow OK in the moat outside my windows at home? Clematis didn't like that location, maybe too shady for them... Where can one acquire such plants?

These are upright fuschias, they do pretty well in lots of shade, as long as they have water.

I originally got these up at flower world in the spring, being sure to get upright, rather than trailing. They were probably $5 each...and I've had them for at least 4 years. When I moved, I divided each plant into two, so now I have 4 of them!

Thanks for the info!

I'll check with KW and see when she's likely to go to Flower World again. Maybe I'll find them if I get a chance to do some exploring with her.
