Fuchsia "Jam Tart"

At home

This one is a favourite of mine, though the plant is a sprawly thing, I love
the double red of this one. Some history follows from Wikipedia.

Fuchsia ( /ˈfjuːʃə/) is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees.
The first, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic) about 1696–1697
by the French Minim monk and botanist,
Charles Plumier, during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles.
He named the new genus after the renowned German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566)

Apparently the proper way of pronouncing fuchsia, is fookseeya, but I can't believe anyone will be using this pronunciation.
