Flowerbuds of Fuchsias 

Today we focus on the flowerbuds of fuchsias.

At present Kobe Kachoen exhibits about 350 kinds of fuchsias. Their elegant beauty is free of gaudiness.

First of all, let's have a look at these five buds. They are all different from each other by their shape, elliptic, strawberry-shaped, banana-shaped, round.....

The organ that consists the outer surface of the bud is called sepal. All species and cultivar of Fuchsias have four sepals per each flower. On the other hand, single flowered fuchsias have four petals, double-petaled cultivars have eight or more.

Next picture shows the development of bud. It takes about two to three weeks for the smallest greenish bud to grow into the largest red one.

Fuchsia is an interesting plant to look at, not only for its flowers but also for its buds. Please make an obervation by yourself during your visit.
