(Display Fuchsia) Along borders and in containers, the floriferous, petite Fuchsia ‘Display’ puts on a long-blooming show with its rose-pink corollas topped with flirty skirts of upward flipping carmine red sepals.
(Genii Fuchsia) Chartreuse foliage so bright that it almost appears golden surrounds the dramatic flowers of Fuchsia ‘Genii’, a mid-sized shrub. The flower's skirt-like sepals, which are often described as “cerise” — sort of a cherry red — flip up over dark violet petals from which long, graceful, cerise anther and stigma filaments dangle.
(HeRi Mochara Fuchsia) What a lovely party dress of a blossom dresses up the trailing Fuchsia ‘HeRi Mochara’. It’s white-to-light violet sepals curl upwards above a ruffled purple corolla with white veins. The foliage is dark green.
(Marinka Fuchsia) Red, red, red — that’s Fuchsia ‘Marinka’ from the tubes and sepals of its blossoms to its corollas. This historic hybrid was introduced to horticulture sometime between 1890 and 1902.
(Roesse Blacky Fuchsia) The crimson sepals of Fuchsia ‘Roesse Blacky’ contrast dramatically with ruffled corollas of a purple so dark it is almost black. This shade-loving, trailing Fuchsia is ideal for containers including hanging baskets.
(Santa Cruz Fuchsia) Candy red is a good description for the tubes and recurved sepals of Fuchsia ‘Santa Cruz’ flowers, which have deep violet corollas. This tall, upright shrub is a hummingbird favorite.
(White Bolivian Fuchsia) A tall, wide shrub with fuzzy, gray-green foliage, Fuchsia boliviana ‘Alba’ features clusters of long white tubes flaring out into white sepals that are red on their undersides. The tiny, four-petaled corollas are also red.
(Orange Mountain Sage) This is the reddest of the Salvia regla species and the most floriferous. Side by side with the other varieties, this one is a bit taller and has darker flowers.
(Purple Haze Anise Hyssop) Tall spikes of smoky, bluish-purple flowers and fragrant, blue-green foliage make drought-resistant Agastache x ‘Purple Haze’ an elegant choice for low water gardens. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees love it.
(Vermilion Tropical Sage) Tall and full of large, orange flowers, Salvia coccinea 'Vermilion' is a strain from the Louisiana gardens of hummingbird guru Nancy Newfield.
(Elk Pink Cloud Jame Sage II) Abounding with clusters of large, soft pink flowers on spreading branches, Salvia x ‘Elk Pink Cloud II’ looks like a fluffy, cumulonimbus cloud.
(Celia Smedley Fuchsia) White to light pink sepals flare out over the strawberry red petals of Fuchsia ‘Celia Smedley’. The flowers hang pendulously amid the veined, mid-green foliage of this mid-sized, upright beauty.
