Daily Flower Candy: Fuchsia ‘Rose of Castile’

Reading time 1 minute

Cascading from the ornate iron supports of the Edwardian conservatory at Wallington Hall, this superb fuchsia is named ‘Rose of Castile’. Bred in Kent in 1869 it makes a large and long-lived shrub. A 60 year old specimen grows outside the Electric Shop on Alcatraz island. ‘Rose of Castile’ establishes itself quickly and can be trained against a sheltered wall or into an elegant free-flowering standard.
