          Janet you link goes to a USA site...which does not show any pics. Think you were refering to this one.....


          Quote....Deep Purple
          ~~Basket~~Absolutely incredible huge blooms with white and purple with pink streaks,


          The flowers of this are huge and look double...not sure that it fits with Harry's simple single flowers.

            Fuchsia are a bit like roses.
            There are now so many species and hybrids...over 2,000 and growing.
            There are probably several that look similar.
