Fuchsia magellanica arauco

Fuchsia magellanica arauco
A very choice naturally occurring form of the popular hardy species with finely crafted flowers on a delicate small leaved shrub. The flowers are typical slender violet and red magellanica, but the sepals are white giving a very classy effect – not even slightly garish.

Like most magellanicas this is hardy and adaptable but seems less heat and drought tolerant than most Fuchsias.

Fuchsia magellanica arauco right, and Lady Bacon. The latter is very similar but paler in foliage and slightly larger in all its parts. I should have some later in the year
