They do not act at great distance, but at a closer look they

delight the heart of every flower friend. They originate in

Central and South America, New Zealand and Tahiti, but they

have already for a long found their place in European

gardens.Whether as a species or cultivar, as a container plant

or planted out - they enrich any garden ...

Species

The genus fuchsia belongs to the family of onagraceae and currently has 107 different species in 12 sections.

Cultivars

CultivarsThe number of fuchsia hybrids, which are blooming in gardens, nurseries or feral in some areas of Ireland, Madeira or New Zealand may exceed the figure of 15.000. Naming of new hybrids therefor is a problem, many names are in use, some of them for more than one cultivar.

Fuchsia Inventar List

In order to avoid double namings it is before registration recommended to check whether the intended name is already in use or has been in use. Possibilities are given by the AFS Bulletins, the so called "Cultivar Inventaris" by the Dutch Circle of Fuchsia Friends (NKvF), the inventar lists of Yannick Baccon or the DDFGG fuchsia inventar, which is an easy to handle internet tool. Don't worry, that the page is in German and English. Euro-Fuchsia apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the incompleteness of all existing databases. Those, who care for data bases are dependent on cataloques, publications about fuchsias, and informations by fuchsia friends, as well as fuchsia breeders. They are only following the development of fuchsia breeding. Therefor Euro-Fuchsia is not able to garantiee, that the databases are complete at any point of time.
