James Lye Fuchsia Collection

Plant Heritage – National Plant Collection of Fuchsia cvs. (introduced by James Lye)

Since 2009 we have used the name of ‘James Lye Fuchsia Collection‘ to identify our National Plant Collection.

Our collection was designated by Plant Heritage as a National Plant Collection® in November 2012 under the official title of ‘Fuchsia cvs. (Introduced by James Lye)’. This recognition is something we are very proud about.

It is an exciting time for us, especially with the continued development of the collection and we look forward to sharing our collection and the information gathered during our research with everyone.

Plant Heritage was formerly known as the National Council for the Conservation of Plants & Gardens (NCCPG). why not visit Plant Heritage’s website for more information about other National Collections around the UK and the world’s leading garden plant conservation charity.
