Fuchsia loxensis

Originating in Ecuador, at altitudes of 2,000 - 3,000m, this charming lax little shrub has proved quite hardy here. For a couple of years it sailed through winter undamaged, but last year it was cut to the ground in February, though it re-grew during the summer.

First discovered by Humboldt and Bonpland near Loja.
