This subspecies of Fuchsia regia was first described in 1829. It was found in the jungles of Brazil where it uses the surrounding trees to clamber up toward the light. This is the fastest growing subspecies and is best used as a climber. The leaves of Fuchsia regia subsp. regia are lance-shaped and have a nice glossy substance. The flowers are small with red tubes, red sepals and purple corollas. We are grateful to the late Salli Dahl for giving us our specimen.
