Looking to the future
Stan BellFuchsia Willow Tinsdale

Botanics has been working with Stan Bell for several years in assessing his varieties for commercial potential. He is a passionate fuchsia breeder and his love of hybridizing is evident when you see the enormous quantity of plants that now fill his garden. Most of his time is spent working with hardy fuchsias and in particular he is seeking to develop new blue varieties.

Seedlings are grown on for trial before Botanics take them for further testing in commercial nurseries. His first success was ‘Willow Tinsdale’ which has gold, burn-resistant, foliage and single blue flowers. For three years now, this has been sold through R. Delamore young plant producers. Another exciting new variety is ‘Dorothy Wright’; a superb broad leaf variety with green foliage that produces masses of red, blue/violet blooms. Four other contenders, which will add something new to hardy fuchsias, will be available for commercial trials in 2014 with potential introduction in 2015.

Stan’s repertoire also includes; several non-hardy bush varieties with unique flower forms on large bushy plants and some interesting subjects of basket fuchsias varieties that will be coming along in 2015/16.
