Fuchsia procumbens is the smallest fuchsia in the world. This native fuchsia makes a good ground cover and will thrive in both sunny and shady places. The flowers are unusual for a fuchsia in that they are upright and yellow in colour. The pollen is blue. It flowers from Spring through to early Autumn. The flowers are followed by edible fruits that ripen to showy bright red.
