Answer: California fuchsias (Zaushneria) are nearly evergreen perennials or sub-shrubs native to most of California. They are bright green with bright red (some varieties are pink or white) trumpet-shaped flowers which attract hummingbirds. They are vigorous (maybe a little too much so in some spots) and drought-tolerant. There are plenty of specialty nurseries in the Hayward area which would carry or could order a California fuchsia for you.
