Overview

The genus Fuchsia contains around 100 evergreen or deciduous shrubs and trees from the Onagraceae family. Fuchsia plants are most often grown for their distinctive, ornate, pendant, bell to tubular-shaped flowers. Originally from regions of Central and South America and New Zealand, this genus occurs naturally in mountainous regions. More than 8,000 hybrids and cultivars have been developed from this genus, featuring a wide range of varying flower structures including single, semi-double and double flowers. Blooms are often pink, purple, red or white and often feature bicolouration. Some hybrids or cultivars may be just one colour.
