description for "Fuchsia: Fuchsia thymifolia"

A most attractive Mexico native that has small green serrated leaves and dainty flowers. Evergreen in frost-free areas, deciduous elsewhere. The dangling white to pink flowers are small and somewhat bell-shaped and age to a deeper pink.The flowers are spread liberally over the plant. Upright in growth, the slender stems are crowded with tiny, deep green leaves that are mite resistant. The foliage is reminiscent of holly. Use in containers or as a garden shrub. All Fuchsias enjoy moist, well drained soil and shelter from hot winds and hot afternoon sun. In harsh climates, grow in a greenhouse or treat as an annual.
