The Epilobiums were previously known as Zauschneria and are still still frequently referred to as such. This Fuchsia is a perennial with showy red-orange flowers that attract hummingbirds.

Not only does this plant have a spectacular flower show but it also looks amazing in containers, if it is pinched back strategically to a desirable shape. It is drought tolerant and cold tolerant.
