Fuschia

Fuschia excorticata


kotukutuku

Fuschia was once plentiful in the bush but now the one specimen near the waters edge seems to be all that is left. Fuchsias are one of the few deciduous native plants of the New Zealand bush. The leaves of the fuchsia may be toothed rather than smooth as shown in the picture above. The flower is most attractive, being produced during July/August. Later the black juicy berries, known as konini, form.
