Gardeners' Notes:

I am very impressed with this hardy upright fuchsia. The flowers might be tiny, but they are abundant all year round. It is currently January 30, 2011 and it is in bloom. It has a nice dense growth habit and has become a large bush in less than two years since the cuttings arrived.

Neutral Baa On Aug 31, 2002, Baa wrote:

A very bushy and floriferous cultivar bred by a Mr Edwards in Great Britian, 1839.

It has tiny crimson pink flowers on a smallish bush with equally tiny leaves (under 1/4 inch). The stems are quite thin, reddish and easy to train to a shape or bonsai. The flowers are followed by tiny black berries.

This Fuchsia is an Encliandra type cultivar from Central America. The Encliandras (a group of about 5 or 6 species) live at a high altitude, which means they are hardier than many Fuchsias and tolerate drier conditions.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Amesti, California
Waterford, California

Salem, Oregon
West Linn, Oregon
Chimacum, Washington
