    Torville and Dean Fuchsia


    Did you know ice dancers Torville and Dean have a Fuchsia plant named for them? It's lovely.

    Yes - and the wrong spelling (Torvill vs. Torville) seems to be consistent concerning that fuchsia. ;-)

    There is also a hybrid tea rose called "Torvill and Dean" (bred in England 1984 by Sealand Nursery). Description: large-flowered, pink and yellow, mild fragrance, the blooms are held strongly on a 3'-4' bush covered in leathery glossy leaves, vigour is excellent and the flowers cut well.

    But I never found a picture of that rose....

    Thanks for replying. I did not expect any response. Yes, I found the spellings for Torvill were different and never consistent. I would love to see that rose!

    Princess Diana also has a rose named for her.

    I think it is quite an honour to have a flower named after one. Quite a thing of beauty.

    Very pretty. Do you have link for more information (i.e how to purchase, growing conditions, etc.)?? Thanks for posting.

    The only thing I've found up to now is obviously kind of a fan page - but fan for the fuchsia in this case... ;-)

    I feel a bit silly...I always thought that fuschia were...well, fuschia <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif ALT=":o">

    Clearly, they are not all fuschia. What a beautiful flower...and what a fitting name. Thank you for sharing this.

    That flower's really pretty. And Jayne's name is often spelled in a number of different ways, but the correct spelling is "Torvill".
