It is exotic, and widely famous аs a hard lady. Beautifully blooming along the whole summer, with magical, rainbow petals. It is appropriate for hanging baskets, flower pots can be placed even in the garden, or can grow up indoors.... Why Not:)? If you're a young expert-to-be, I'll try to provide you with the most necessary knowledge, cause the secret hidden behind every progress is love, proper care, and love, again. I find this plant in my top list, it comes with so much energy...yes, it is definitely in my top 5 favorite plants. Romantic and individual, minimum commercial and significantly more original than red roses....The origin of this plant is South and Central America plus New Zealand. First discovered on the Caribbean island - Haiti. These days, they are countless varieties available on the market ( around 110 species). It is grown mostly as a bush but could develop also as a stunning decorative tree. If you want to allow the magnificent flowers to get out of jail and freely hang, don't be afraid to support them using sticks attached to the stem. The plant must be grateful, all the compliments till now and my excitement is provoked by its flowers and their colors.
 So, a moment to appreciate the mother nature :) Very rich of color, and plenty of flowers. Don't stress the plant with a sunshine spot or a very bright place, the best is a half-shade yard. A hanging basket under the crown of an old tree. If you suffer rapid flower loss it is probably of too much sun. It is very important, while the growing period to water the plant strictly. Actually, it would take time, and you have to invest - care if you want to be rewarded - admiration. It is up to you how to supply with your fuchsia, plant it as a seed and grow it up or buy it from the local florist. The plant blooms from mid summer through mid Fall and offers striking purple, white, pink, red, orange, long, tribule hanging blooms. The leaves are quite large, simple and elliptical, they are opposite or in whorls of three to five and have serrated margins. It is frost tender and must be kept indoors in winter. The plant is a small shrub up to 90 cm ( 3 feet ) tall. Some of them are deciduous or evergreen.
Interesting facts about the plant history are that is named after the German botanist Leonhart Fuchs lived in the 16th century, and named his book on the color of the flower - fuchsia. In 1859, the French chemist Verguin patented and first introduced the color fuchsia, which was renamed later the same year as magenta due to the appreciation of the French army's victory - the Battle of Magenta, near the Italian city Magenta. The fruit of all fuchsia species and cultivars is edible, with the berry of F. splendens, the flavor is reminiscent of citrus and black pepper, it can be made into jam.
