There are many names that have been attributed to this incredible plant for its beauty and grace: trumpets, bells of Heaven ... The English call them Ladies' eardrops or rather «lady's earrings» because they recall graceful earrings due to their pendant shape.
Charles Plumier was a French Franciscan friar who in 1693, noticing them while he was in Mexico, once returned to Europe drew them thus revealing their existence and calling them Fuchsia, in honor of Leonhart Fuchs, a Bavarian doctor who in the previous century had made a of the most important herbaria in Europe. However, it was in the following century that this beautiful plant began to become fashionable and to be present in the living rooms and gardens of the houses.
Its meaning is linked to grace, delicacy, kindness, fragility, delicate touch and the predominant color of its flowers between pink and violet has given rise to the name of the fuchsia color.
