Lost Fuchsia: Duke of Albany

The Duchess of Albany is looking for her lost Duke.

We are not sure when the ‘Duke of Albany’ disappeared from cultivation, and are hoping that our #detectives are able to help us reunite the couple.

The Dukedom was create in 1881 for the fourth son of Queen Victoria, and we suspect that the cultivars ‘Duke of Albany’ & ‘Duchess of Albany’ were introduced earlier that currently know date of 1885 to commemorate their marriage (Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont and Prince Leopold) in 1882.

We hope that you will help us find more information about this #fuchsia cultivar and any information relating to it’s introduction or when it was last seen or listed in a #nursery catalogue.
