Earring Plant, Fuchsia: FOTD 5/4/2020

Ten days ago,  I published a photo of a totally white flower with a white ball in the center. Yolanda called it an arete flower, I knew it as a fuchsia and suspected it was a bleeding heart, but I’d never seen a totally white one before. A few days later, the white ball had turned red and I published another photo of it. Now, here it is opened up. Not a bleeding heart, but definitely a fuchsia and what Yolanda calls, in translation, an earring plant.

Here are links to the two earlier stages of the plant:

Dusty Miller and Friend, FOTD Feb 15, 2020


I bought this wood carving at the orchid festival in Mazamitla. I love its primitiveness. It wanted to come stand under the dusty miller and amidst the ferns.
