Probably a hybrid or cultivar but I have found no description of this plant.

Horticultural & Botanical History

No data.


History at Camden Park

Listed among fuchsias grown at Camden in a letter to J. Abbott of Hobart on 16th June 1846.  [MP A2908, p.159].


A fuchsia called ‘Foribunda’ is still available, at least in the USA.  It is described as having single bluish-violet corolla with sepals of cerise.  [www.backyardgardener.com].  I don’t know if this is the Victorian cultivar or a more modern plant.
