Stunning, lush Windmill Fuchsia Flower!

The Fuchsia belongs to the evening primrose (Onagraceae) family and comprises around 100 species of shrubs and small to medium-sized trees. They can be evergreen or deciduous, spreading or climbing, and all come from Central and South America, except for a few that are native to New Zealand and Tahiti. With their stunning flowers and lush foliage, fuchsias offer tremendous ornamental qualities, and are ideal for hedges, containers, and hanging baskets, or trained on espaliers (train a tree/shrub to grow flat against a well).  In their native habitat, the American species are pollinated by hummingbirds.
