"California fuchsia has a scientific name that has moved a lot. For the moment most them have been lumped together as Epilobium canum. We still prefer the older names that used Zauschneria and think that, with time, Zauschneria may come back.
California Fuchsias have colors from white, pink to orange and red. Gray foliage and green foliage. Wide leaves and narrow leaves. They commonly grow where there is extra moisture in the winter and spring, gradually drying through fall. The prefer cool sun, but tolerate part-shade or hot sun with moisture."
