Description
 
Wandering Fuchsia.  This South American species defies conventional Fuchsia Form by being nearly vine-like in its inclinations.  Silver-green leaves with red petioles clad the stems which wend, lean and insinuate themselves up and through shrubs or fences which in frost-free areas can be a pretty exciting 15'-20'.  Us ordinary folk who garden with the vagaries of Northwest winters can usually content ourselves with it regrowing from the base each year and getting 6'-9' which is still more fun than you should have with a Fuchsia.  Small and narrow flowers with red sepals and a light purple corolla.  Thanks to Jeanette Kunnen for sharing this from her Seattle area collector's garden where this calls a short section of  ornamental fencing home.
