Fuchsia fulgens is a species fuchsia that grows to a tidy (1.2m) shrub, that flowers all year long in warmer regions. This quick growing plant is only hardy to Christchurch and will drop its leves and flowers in response to cold weather. Heavy frost will burn the tops but the shrub will regrow from root tubers.

The long dark pink buds open to flowers with very tube and orange corolla. The tepals have a hint of green. The juicy fruit is edible and has a nice acidic flavour.
