The South Coast Botanic Garden is home to the only public fuchsia garden in Los Angeles County. Just a week before the annual fuchsia show and sale, come learn about this amazing, showy flower. The slideshow presentation will cover the origin of the plant, its discovery, and the popularity of the plant in Victorian England where it was known as "Lady's Eardrops". The presentation will also cover care of your fuchsia plant, and how to make amazing floral shows. Even if you are not a fuchsia grower, you will find this talk interesting. Come enjoy a day at the Garden, and while you are there take a break and learn about fuchsias.
