James Lye and his Fuchsias: Kristopher Harper will discuss his collection of these special fuchsias and the man behind them
Kris has been tracking down and collecting the fuchsias introduced by Victoria hybridiser James Lye. In the latter half of the nineteenth century James became famous for raising and introducing fifty to sixty cultivars, many of these bear the now recognised Lye ‘Hall Mark’ which is a rich creamy white tube and sepals with a dense wax like texture. The collection is set in a suburban garden with an eclectic array of planting.
