(PPAF 10,453 expired) I love the word "heat-tolerant" in the description of a fuchsia. In catalog-speak, this means the plant will tolerate more than one day above 90 degrees F before croaking. Imagine my surprise when our test plants of Fuchsia 'Sanicomf' thrived through one of the hottest summers in recent memory! Fuchsia 'Sanicomf' comes from the Suntory breeding program in Japan, where the actual intent was to produce true heat-tolerant fuchsias...much to the delight of our hummingbirds. This dwarf plant makes a 2' tall x 15" wide mound, adorned from May through October with pendent flowers consisting of purple petals, red sepals, and red anthers...very hot and loving it!
