One of the easiest and least troublesome fuchsias to grow, is vigorous, flowers freely. Proven resistance to rust, red spider mite and white fly. Reputedly also completely resistant to Fuchsia Gall Mite. Attracting increasing interest from hybridisers for its virtual invulnerability.
Originating in the cloud forests of southern Brazil, this species has bright green leaves, produced in whorls of three, which have a shiny finish and a faint bronze tinge particularly to their underside.
Tube: Deep pink, slender.
Sepals: Deep pink, slightly paler below, 1/2 down, slightly reflexed tip.
Corolla: Deep violet, unflared.
Foliage: Bright mid green.
