#358 They called me Fuchsia magellanica, also known as Fuchsia thompsonii, Fuchsia magellanica var. riccartonii, and Fuchsia ricoartonii. I pay homage to the male botanists William Thompson, Riccarton (I couldn’t find his records), and Ricoarton (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1788.
