Fuchsia thymifolia, 10 seeds
Encliandras Fuchsias originate from the high areas of the tropical rain forests in Central America. These are usually characterized by small flowers and have 4 stamens protruding beyond the rim of the tube instead of the usual 8 as per other Fuchsias. If you are a Fuchsia collector and have not yet looked into the species, here is one Encliandra that would merit a place in your garden. Fuchsia thymifolia is an unusual, rare and beautiful perennial from Mexico that bears flowers of a familiar shape, but in a distinctly unfamiliar setting. Very different from the large, blousy flowers of the popular hybrids, it carries an abundance of small, cutie-pie, brilliant pink blooms with contrasty white stamens. Upon pollination, the blossoms turn into attractive, small, blackish-purple berries. The fine, thyme-like, green delicate foliage are perfectly in proportion to the blooms and berries. Such daintiness makes this plant a perfect subjet for bonsai, although if grown as a taller shrub, it would also be a highlight in any garden. Hardy from zone 9 upwards. 4 feet tall and wide. Light shade. Moist, rich soil. Usually available only in plant forms. Exclusive fresh seeds, harvested 07/2016.
