Fuchsia Genus
Physical Description
Looks like a Rocket Flower. Fuchsia leaves are opposite or in whorls of 35, simple lanceolate and usually have serrated margins (entire in some species), 125 cm long, and can be either deciduous or evergreen, depending on the species. The flowers are very decorative, pendulous "eardrop" shape, borne in profusion throughout the summer and autumn, and all year in tropical species. They have four long, slender sepals and four shorter, broader petals; in many species the sepals are bright red and the petals purple (colours that attract the hummingbirds that pollinate them), but the colours can vary from white to dark red, purple-blue, and orange. A few have yellowish tones, and recent hybrids have added the colour white in various combinations. The ovary is inferior and the fruit is a small (525 mm) dark reddish green, deep red, or deep purple, edible epigynous berry, containing numerous very small seeds. Many people describe the fruit as having a subtle grape flavor spiced with black pepper.
