BT....... Sounds to me like your dad really knew what he was doing with those fuchsias. Several years ago when I was running my own small back yard garden shop, I had a collection of fuchsias - about 500 varieties. They were such hard work, in the end I sold all my stock - even the standards that I had grown, and was reasonably proud of. If you are going to be serious about the subject, it may be an idea to contact the "Fuchsia society" if indeed it is still in existence.
In any event, your dad gave you a very valuable gift if he gave you this wonderful love of gardening. Hats off to you and your very special dad.
If you do manage to list your new fuchsia as a new cultivar - let us know
