More From This Author Deformed vegetative growth caused by the fuchsia gall mite Aculops fuchsiae on a susceptible fuchsia. Photographs by David Goldberg, except as noted Drawings of fuchsia blossoms tantalized Europeans well before the actual plants arrived. He had made several drawings and was able to get them safely home, but all of the plants he had collected were lost when their ship sank in a storm. In spite of this inauspicious beginning, fuchsias have been collected from throughout their native range Mexico to the southern tip of South America and have become valued residents of our gardens.

The first fuchsias to become popular in Europe Fuchsia triphylla and others had long-tubed, red flowers.

By the s, a group of hybrids involving various species, but particularly F. The new flowers were shorter and wider, and some were double, their many petals resembling the tutus of tiny ballerinas. Fuchsias were introduced into California gardens soon after Americans settled here. In , a flower show in San Francisco featured twenty-four hybrid fuchsias. Not only were fuchsias popular as show plants, grown in pots and hanging baskets, but they became popular as easy and dependable landscape shrubs where summers were on the cool side and winters mild.

Gardeners in San Francisco often planted fuchsias in combination with the pink-flowered shrub impatiens Impatiens sodenii, syn. Both were easy to propagate by cuttings, and gardeners passed them around most of the year.

Fuchsias were grown up and down the Pacific Coast, even into Vancouver, with frost protection where needed; inland gardeners loved the plants so much that they installed shade structures and elaborate sprinkler systems to help them through the hot dry summers.

Meanwhile, in England and Europe, fuchsias experienced a setback caused by two world wars. Military battles, economic difficulties, and the need to grow food rather than flowers meant that ornamental horticulture, especially when a greenhouse was required, suffered from the beginning of World War I until long after World War II.

In , a delegation of the newly formed American Fuchsia Society traveled to Europe to collect hybrid fuchsias in gardens there. Of the fifty-one cultivars they sent back by ocean liner, forty-eight survived; the collection was divided between Berkeley Horticultural Nursery long known for its fuchsia offerings and the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley. Breeding continued in this country until fuchsia fanciers had hundreds of choices of flower form and color.

The lilac-like panicles of tiny flowers on Fuchsia paniculata are distinctive; plants are fully resistant to fuchsia gall mite Disaster Strikes San Francisco and the Bay Area remained the center of the fuchsia love affair until it was shipwrecked in by a small mite native to South America, accidentally introduced on some contraband plants.

The fuchsia gall mite Aculops fuchsiae , so tiny that it can only be seen with a powerful magnifier, enters the plant tissue and causes the plant to develop unsightly galls, often twisting stems, leaves, and flowers into nearly unrecognizable masses.

Fuchsia enthusiasts first tried to fight the mite, but, after years of repeated pruning and spraying with relatively toxic systemic miticides , all but the most dedicated gave up and ripped out their susceptible plants.

Most of the plants were removed from the Golden Gate Park Fuchsia Dell and the sign was put into storage. Things looked gloomy for fuchsias for some years.

The only plants they found to have no mite damage at all were Fuchsia minutifolia, F. Research determined that one of the main reasons for so many hybrid fuchsias falling prey to the gall mite was that most of them contained genetic material from Fuchsia magellanica, an exceedingly mite-susceptible species that passed the trait on to its hybrid progeny.

Despite its susceptibility, this species is hardy and tough, so it still lives in many a garden, although its leaves and small purple and red flowers or, in rare cases, pale pink ones are often deformed by the mite.

Over the years, growers have continued to seek gall mite-resistant fuchsias by evaluating existing species and hybrids, and through breeding programs.

Their work is beginning to bear flowers. While we are far from having a range of mite-resistant hybrids matching the diversity and size of the old ones, there are now many tempting choices available for gardeners who want to grow troublefree fuchsias.

About one and a half inches long, the flowers are held out from the leaves at an angle and appear from spring to fall. Near the California coast, it makes a low spreading shrub in full sun. Also from Mexico, F. Fuchsia arborescens has shiny leaves, while those of F. It grows to five feet tall and wide. Photograph by Dr Peter Baye Only a few classic fuchsia hybrids have been found to be fully mite resistant. Breeders have begun to use old hybrids and species to recreate the forms and variety of fuchsias that can no longer be safely grown in the Bay Area.

Some of this breeding has been aimed at show flowers, the ones grown in pots or hanging baskets to compete on the basis of their flower form. Long pendant flowers of Fuchsia vulcanica, fully resistant to fuchsia gall mite Breeding for Resistance Botanist Peter Baye, a volunteer at Strybing in when he initiated the breeding program, has continued to send hybrids back to SFBG from his new home in Annapolis Sonoma County.

One of the first introductions was determined to be a spontaneous hybrid between Fuchsia magellanica and F. While it may spread somewhat from suckers, it is suitable as a hedge or garden shrub and is hardy to at least Sunset zone It is fully resistant to both gall mites and fuchsia rust. Sometimes mislabeled in nurseries as F. Since the development of this cultivar, a number of others have been introduced.

This has an irregular growth habit and such heavy flowering that its vigor is reduced; however, it is quite rare to have any yellow on a fuchsia blossom. Its big, waxy, flowers have two-inch-long orange red sepal tubes and red petals. Both have relatively high mite resistance and immunity to rust. The Fuchsia Dell in Golden Gate Park was replanted in with resistant species and hybrids available at the time; even the sign has been replaced.

Nurseries, botanical gardens, and college horticulture departments are offering plants with mite resistance. While the genetic re-exploration is just getting underway, it is becoming safe to love fuchsias again because of the possibility of finding great plants that are free of the dreaded fuchsia gall mite. Inside the sepals are four petals or more if the flower is double that are often a different color from the sepals.

The style and eight stamens, often brightly colored, usually extend beyond the petals. At the base of each floral tube is an ovary that ripens to a berry; it is edible, though usually rather bland. Hard-core fuchsia traditionalists often avoid the species, whereas species collectors and specialists love them, and open-minded gardeners might appreciate them in their own right.

Infestation of susceptible plants is more likely in some locations and some years than in others, largely a matter of chance. The mite thrives in the cool weather that most fuchsias also prefer. Coastal Northern California and Oregon seem to offer the perfect environment for the mite, but it is found throughout the West Coast and in Europe, mostly in areas mild enough for fuchsias to remain in the ground throughout the year.

These poisons can harm bees and hummingbirds, so it is best to remove all blossoms for a few weeks after spraying. It is unlikely that repeated spraying with a systemic pesticide, combined with an application of oil spray in winter to kill mite eggs, will ever completely eliminate mites from a plant once they have become established.

If a plant shows only minor damage from mites, cutting off damaged growth several inches below the damage and disposing of it outside the garden may be enough to save the plant. Use gloved hands; remember that infested plants are teaming with invisible mites, so clean your shears, gloves, and hands before touching any healthy plants.
