Discovered in the early 1900's by John Ridding of Worcestershire England. A sport from Fuchsia triphylla species.
The genus Fuchsia is named after Leonard Fuchs (1501-1566), a German Botanist. I have over wintered Fuchsia in a bright window. Before the first frost cut back the plants hard and repot. You can move them down into a smaller pot. Make sure you spray for pests, since in my greenhouse and house Fuchsia were Spider Mite and White Fly magnets.
