Fuchsia triphylla thalia

Fuchsia triphylla ‘Thalia’ or Fuchsia ‘Thalia’ is an upright shrub. It grows up to 3′ or 90cm. But it is a slow grower. It is part of the Onagraceae family of plants. Fuchsia triphylla is a strong grower but if you need a bushy display in a pot usually you can put two or three in early spring and start pinching the tip early on. It usually takes 12 weeks from pinching to produce flowers but since flowers come in a bunch, once it gets going it provides a lot of color from spring to autumn.
