Art: Fuchsia by Artist Delilah Smith
During his 1696-97 exploration of the Antilles, Dom Charles Plumier noticed a small downy shrub with leaves arranged in threes and fours and dense terminal cymes of pendant red tubular flowers. Plumier named the plant in honor of Leonhard Fuchs, a botanist who'd lived in Germany a century earlier. Plumier's plant—Fuchsia triphylla, flore coccineo—the fuchsia with three leaves and red flowers. In the 1753 publication of Species Plantarum, Linnaeus retained the genus Fuchsia and shortened the name to triphylla.For interesting inforamtion look at the link.Fuchsia also known as Lady's Eardrops. http://www.killerplants.com/plant-of-the-week/20070604.asp
