Rarely offered as seed, this plant bears countless small bright red flowers which adorn the compact dividing branches, which are clad with equally tiny leaves, and finally the branches are arrayed with numerous small black berries! These lovely versatile plants are quite different from the normal run of fuchsias, and they can be trained to most shapes including Bonsai. If grown in a conservatory or greenhouse during the winter months, they will continue to produce flowers that are larger than those in the summer time. Many of these types are quite hardy, and if cut to the ground reliably spring up again the following spring. They perform really well if grown in pots, and with this protection you have the added advantage of the winter flowers. This gorgeous form has larger flowers than others of the Encliandra group.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C.
