We have no illusions of growing this species to its full, small tree height. Instead, use it in containers where we enjoy its long, narrow, soft blue-green foliage and the clusters of 2-inch, pendant flowers. The flowers have white tubes and sepals, but the orange of the corolla is visible under the white tube. Interesting white fruits develop after flowering. Fuchsia boliviana var. alba is lax in habit, with arching stems. We thank Shirley Lock for giving us our specimens.
