A little trivia about Fuchsia Flowers
There are over 100 different species of the Fuchsia. Native to South America with a few occurring from Central America, Mexico and New Zealand this flower is considered a shrub and some species can grow as large a tree. The flowers are very decorative pendulous "teardrop" shape, blooming in profusion throughout the summer and autumn. Tropical species can bloom all year long. They have four long, slender, sepals and four shorter, broader, petals; in many species the sepals are bright red and the petals purple colors that attract the hummingbirds that pollinate the flowers. Colors can vary from white to dark red, purple-blue, and orange.
