Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Fuchsia coccinea, Ait. Not known to be cult, in Amer., and inserted here for the purpose of clearing up the synonymy of F. coccinea. This species appears to have been intro. before F. magellanica, and it was named F. coccinea by Aiton. F. magellanica, however, "usurped its name and spread it to every garden in the kingdom, whilst the true plant lingered in botanic gardens, lastly surviving (greatly to the credit of the Baxters, father and son) in that of Oxford alone." The species was lost from its intro. in 1788 to its rediscovery in an Oxford garden in 1867; meantime forms of F. magellanica passed as F. coccinea. "F. coccinea is much more graceful than any of the varieties of F. magellanica, flowers even more freely, and is readily distinguished by the almost sessile leaves with broad bases, and the hairy twigs and petioles; further, its foliage turns of a bright crimson when about to fall." —J. D. Hooker, B.M. 5740. Probably Brazilian. The plant should be looked for in collections. CH
