Fuchsia coccinea



A rather lax straggling bush. I planted it under a tree, and it promptly dried out, then under the eaves of the shed, where it flooded, so now I only have one in a pot, but it will go out again next year (somewhere).

Introduced to Kew from Brazil in 1789 the leaves and flowers resemble F. magellanica but the plant is very different, a low scrambling plant with long thin stems rather than the more or less shrubby F. magellanica.
