Thanks to our friend Alex Wright who gave us cuttings of this showy but somewhat tender fuchsia. Hybridized by Lorenz Ignaz and released in 2002, Fuchsia 'Steirerblut' is attractive both in and out of bloom. The dramatic young foliage is stained purple with distinct pink veining. As they age, the leaves green up slightly looking more bronze than purple. The brilliant flowers bloom in terminal clusters. Individual flowers are long and tubular with red tubes and sepals and darker red corollas. The name of this fuchsia refers to the "blood" of the Styrian region of Austria.
