Fuchsia petiolaris - BSWJ10675

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £20.00
A relatively small shrubby species we encountered on the edge of the Paramo of Termales del Ruiz a botanically rich area, in the south of Colombia at 3550m in 2004. Mostly seen at 75cm tall, although capable of double that, growing in profusion on steep banks at the edge of the track we were climbing. With masses of long pendulous flared red to rose pink trumpet-flowers, that attracted the pollinating humming birds, followed by glossy black fruit. Best grown in a moisture retentive soil in full sun to part shade. Not tested for hardiness.
