Fuchsia boliviana is a species fuchsia that grows to a handsome (1.5m) shrub, with flowers all year long. It is a quick growing tender plant, suitable to frost free areas, but will tolerate a few days of very mild frost once established. Some of the tops and foliage will be burnt. These should be off in the Spring.

The flowers each has a long red tube and red tepals, with salmon pink corolla. They form on thin terminal inflorences that bend down. Green cylindrical fruits form if the flower has been pollinated. These ripen dark purple, almost black.

WarningFuchsia boliviana is classed as a weed in the greater Auckland region and cannot be propagated and sold.
