Fuchsia
'Galfrey Lye'

Fuchsia "Galfrey Lye" Fuchsia 'Galfrey Lye'

One of the first successes in the breeding of GALL MITE RESISTANT Fuchsias, 'Galfrey Lye' is also one of the most cold hardy - returning from the base after frosts down to 8-10° F. It’s also one of the earliest & most abundant bloomers, forming a graceful shrub to 4’ x 3’ with arching wine-red stems & sweet, smallish, bright green foliage. Enchanting white-blushed-pink tubes & sepals atop smoky carmine petals look much like (3”) fairy-lantern blooms dangling from exceptionally long & slender stems (up to 6 per node). Long blooming - almost year around in temperate frost-free areas. Do provide rich, well-draining soil & an annual side dress of compost to keep it fat & happy.
