San Francisco, the Fuchsia capital!

San Francisco was once known as the fuchsia capital; our cool, foggy summers were found to be key to their success. Fuchsia plants were all the rage throughout the city, including Golden Gate Park. In 1940 the “Fuchsia Dell” was planted in the park but had to be removed in the 1980’s when an invasive mite decimated the collection. A decade later the Dell was re-planted with fresh specimens after mite-resistant varieties were discovered. Drop by the Dell this spring, and see the magical fuchsias outside the Conservatory of Flowers.
