For Cee’s FOTD

Yolanda calls this flower an arete..or earring flower, so if she is correct, it is a white fuchsia, which I’d never seen before Pasiano brought me this plant. We’ll see what happens when that little round ball opens up. She’s probably right .

      I think you are right. It has only bloomed once before and I can’t remember if that little white ball turns into a red or a white “earring.” We’ll know tomorrow. Thanks for the scientific name. We used to call them bleeding hearts but I’d never seen a white one before I sent Pasiano to pick out two plants of his choice and he came home with this one. It never occurs to me to buy white flowers, but like this one.
