Fuchsia 'Chili Red' has surprised us. On close inspection we realized that the flowers lacked the conventional corolla so familiar to gardeners. Instead the flowers, which open slowly, consist of a red tube and red sepals. In addition, the buds are unusually elongated and are slow to open. Indeed, at first glance, they resemble red chili peppers as the name suggests. The plant is upright and compact and would be ideal in a container although we grow it in the front of a border. This is a fine addition to our hardy fuchsia collection.
