A fuchsia that is an intense orange-red loved by the hummingbirds and the Dogface butterfly. The Dogface almost crawls into the big red flower to get to the nectar. This California fuchsia needs water only if your rainfall is less than 10 inches. It will tolerate garden conditions. If you live in the San Joaquin Valley this red hummingbird flower is for YOU. The flowers get huge and the plant is a mass of orange three feet tall.
The stems of this California Fuchsia can look like Bert in a mini-dress. Best hidden behind something so only the top of his hat is showing.
