Description
 
This is not a Fuchsia to which one can remain indifferent.  A tender species from South America, this is a winter-bloomer with long, thin flowers appearing at leaf fall and then adorning the 3'-5' bare stems.  The distinctly softly lavender-pink flowers lack an inner corolla presenting a very pleasing minimalist design aesthetic and the large orange fruit which follow are an unexpectedly discordant delight. We're not sure how this species came by its name but it will totally rule your greenhouse in winter.  Here in the PNW, flowering is punctuated by ongoing street fights among factions of overwintering Anna's hummingbirds vying for control.  Viva la revolucion!
