Fuchsia boliviensis v. luxurians - BSWJ14871

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £30.00
From our drive back from the rather notorious El Cocuy in the north east of Colombia, when we took advantage of a lull in hostilities in early 2016. Passing up to Cerrito Paramo when we spotted this rather conspicuous colourful form of the wide-spread species, with 6cm long tubed bright red flowers. Held on slender upright tan branches of large soft-textured pale green leaves at 3,200 m, which may well avail it some additional hardiness. Best grown in shelter from frost outside or inside in colder areas. In a moisture retentive well fed soil with reasonable drainage, in full sun to part shade. To 3m tall.
