Fuchsia procumbens glaucous form

Fuchsia procumbens - reverted Wirral probably
A fascinating species from New Zealand (almost all other Fuchsia are Latin-American) with bizarre little green and yellow flowers with violet anthers, peeking up from among the little round leaves. In a good year you’ll also get the edible cranberry-like fruits.
Normally considered very borderline in cold-tolerance, the parents of these plants have come through the last few winters in mid Sussex without trouble. Best in rather dry shade in my experience. This form has grey leaves
