Fuchsia sp.: flower

[Photo: Fuchsia sp.]Fuchsia is a genus of plants, mostly shrubs, native to South America, Central America, New Zealand, and Tahiti. They are grown for their numerous showy, dangling flowers, in shades of fuchsia (of course), purple, white. These tropical plants can go outside during the Toronto summer and make pretty houseplants the rest of the year. This blossom was photographed in Allan Gardens' greenhouse.
