ABSTRACT
Fuchsia, a genus of flowering plants belonging to the evening primrose family. There are nearly 100 species of fuchsias Most of them are low shrubs, but others grow as trailing plants, climbers, and small trees. Some have edible berries, and some yield a dye. Fuchsias are native mainly to tropical and subtropical America, but a few species are found in New Zealand and Tahiti. The genus is named for Leonard Fuchs (1501�1566), a Bavarian botanist.
