Daily Flower Candy: Fuchsia ‘Rose of Castile’

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.
