Mostly climbing or spreading shrubs, fuchsias have deep green, heavily veined leaves that grow in whorls on the stems. The pendulous flowers have long tubes with flared sepals and often contrastingly colored petals, mostly in shades of red, white, pink, and purple, as well as bicolored. The garden hybrids usually have rounded flowers with a skirt of large sepals around an often double corolla. Fleshy berries, usually with many seeds, follow the flowers.

Hi Bonnie, I never thought that fuschia are flowers? I only thought that it was a color...oh no! Anyway I have learned something new again. Thanks for sharing.

BTW Sagada is near the city of Baguio, it's in Ifugao Province. It's is a secluded place and very nice place to stay.
