Fuchsia magellanica var. gracilis ‘Aurea’
golden ladies eardrops

Chosen by Ellen Zagory

I can never resist the beautiful and delicate flower of this species that I always wish could be made into a pair of earrings! Needing shade and plenty of water, it can be grown on a porch or windowsill where you can enjoy it close up.
