Jessimae


'Jessimae' is a cute little white and pink simple flower on a low growing bush. What sets this one a bit apart is the bright green of the leaves. A much brighter green than the norm. Fuchsia foliage is as unique to each individual cultivar as their flowers are. With experience, one can tell each cultivar just by it's foliage and growth habit, even if there are no blooms present. It is also possible to tell which ones are probably decended from the same species used to create all of the hybrids. People have been hybridizing fuchsias since at least the mid 1800's.
