Fuchsia thymifolia

I grow this tender looking Fuchsia thymifolia in the shade.  It's semi woody branches arch up to 3 feet and carry numerous 1/4" blooms.  I use it for the fine foliage texture and the beautiful small  flowers that carry a familiar shape and a distinctly unfamiliar setting.   It is so different from the large, often blousy, flowers of the popular hybrids.   Fuchsia thymifolia will be damaged by frosty nights that fall below 25° F and killed in the low 20°s F. It grows well in a low to moderately to well watered garden.
