Neutral Joan On Dec 7, 2008, Joan from Belfield, ND (Zone 4a) wrote:

Fuchsia paniculata is a large shrub that can grow to 10 ft, or a small tree that can grow to 25 ft. The plant is bushy and flowers heavily.

The lance shaped leaves are serrated and 2-6 inches long. They are dark green on top and and paler green underneath.

All parts of Fuchsia paniculata , but especially the leaf stalks, have a reddish purple tint.

The flowers are not like other Fuchsia flowers, as they are small and carried in erect panicles. The purplish pink flowers are followed by small purplish red berries.
