Did I read somewhere that fuchsias are now socially acceptable? Someone may have even mentioned that harbinger of market-flooding “on trend”. Fuchsia ‘Thalia’ doesn’t care if it is à la mode or passé and quite frankly, nor do I. Elegant, floriferous and self sufficient, I don’t need anyone to point out its obvious worth. You can, however, keep the frilly dancing ladies for yourself. Each to their own and I wish you well. There are plenty of other subtle beauties to keep me happy.
