Fuchsias Discussion Forum

Communities > Forums > Fuchsias
Fuchsias delight gardeners all over the world with their “ladies earrings” or “dancing ballerinas” in an amazing variety of forms and colors. From tiny little simple flowers to fist sized doubles, the color range fills the rainbow. They were named in honor of the German botanist Leonhardt Fuchs when Europeans first brought fuchsias from the Americas. And although the majority of them favor cool rainy mountainsides in tropical and sub-tropical forests, their habitats cover many zones. They make beautiful landscaping points of interest, are happy in containers, and can even be grown indoors. Many heat and/or cold tolerant varieties have been hybridized over a period of more than 170 years now. There are hundreds of species and over 10,000 recognized hybrids to choose from.

Visit the Fuchsia category in the PlantFiles to view samples and learn more about which ones may interest you and your local hummingbirds.
