Resembling a dainty ballerina, this flowering plant grows in luxurious, dripping vines and can live for hundreds of years.Why We Love Them
We keep two baskets of the South American native hanging outside the GC office as a lush, vibrant accent.Requirements
Fuchsias prefer a cooler climate, with less sun. Keep them well-watered in a pot with good drainage, and fertilize regularly.Color Me Surprised
The color of Fuchsia-- a variant of magenta-- is named after the flower. The color was popular during WWII as a challenge to the hardships of war. (We think it's time for a resurgence...)Taste The Rainbow
All parts of the fuchsia plant are edible-- but the berries make an especially tasty jam.
