Fuchsia hybrida

Fuchsia, Fuchsia hybridaThis fuchsia bush, which has been in my yard for 35 years or so, was cloned from a cutting of a bush which grown in my father's yard for about 20 years, which had been cloned from a cutting of a bush in his father's yard, which was very old, but of indeterminate age.  There are numerous cultivars (cultivated varieties) of fuchsias, I have no idea of a name for this one.

Fuchsia, Fuchsia hybridaHere, near the end of a long, drooping branch are buds and flowers in various stages of maturity.  Notice that when the flower first opens it is bluish purple, then turns more red.
