Tiny leaved hybrid covered with small pink-red flowers until frost. This little gem always grabs people’s attention even though the flowers are tiny. This tough plant has bloomed during winter and has dealt with constant pruning by the deer. It is now more protected and has really started to grow and fill out. Not sure what size it will eventually get to.
It is a very old hybrid dating back to before 1914 and an encliandra type fuchsia with single flowers.

It is often recommended for bonsai, but I have not tried it yet. I can see the potential.
Has proven to be fairly easy to propagate and is a plant that everyone wants to take home with them.
