Fuchsia arborescens or the Tree Fuchsia is an evergreen shrub with an erect and open habit.  In spring the plants is covered with big panicles of bright pink flowers.  Even in bud this plant is stunning, starting out lilac-pink before bursting open to a softer pink. The effect is like having lit sparklers all over your plant! It flowers most months of the year, and is a very heavy bloomer. Each flower cluster can get up to 2-cm across with dozens of flowers. After flowering, it makes dark blue, grape-like berries that are edible!  Like most Fuchsias, it likes fertile, well-draining soil that's kept evenly moist.  Grow in semi shade, protecting it from the harsh midday to afternoon sun.  In cool climates protect from frost. Not suited for hot climates. Height up to 4m.

 

Excellent cut flowers.
