What do these mean?



Humboldt County fuchsia is found in Califrornia’s coastal mountains from Mendocino County north. Like its more common relative, Epilobium canum, it is prized by gardeners for its bright red, tubular flowers which cover the plant densely in the late summer and fall. This selection grows in a low, spreading patch of gray leaves. It is quite adaptable to a variety of soils and drainages. It perhaps does best with protection from the afternoon sun and occasional summer water. Like all California fuchsia, ‘Wayne’s Silver’ is considered deer resistant.
