Could be Mrs Popple, or Betty Sue or Army Nurse?

I agree Frankey, I just wasn't sure how big your purple 'skirts' were, but the pink petals seem to match  There's a lot of fuchsias out there, I have 6 different types in my garden - can't name them all though   Would like to add to them, and quite possibly will

Hi 4thPanda, Could not find Betty Sue?

Hmm, that would be because it's actually called Beckie Lou  Sorry. Don't know where my brain is tonight

the fuchsia is Mrs Popple

Maybe, just shoots leading to flower are red:

and original photo are green?

Popple was my first idea, then so many alternate opinions....
