Do you have any dwarf eucalyptus? Or know where it might be available or even exists?

Do you have any fuschias that might survive here, could be indoors or out--everyone I've tried died a slow violent death.

Thanks in advance

There is a dwarf eucalyptus, but Monrovia doesn't carry it. Eucalyptus spathulata or Narrow-leafed gimlet, is the common name. This is a specialty plant so I can only suggest you canvas local nurseries for availability. Fuchsia's typically do not like the heat and humidity of Texas, but you might try Fuchsia triphylla, also called Gartenmeister Bonstedt. This plant is native to the West Indies and tolerant of more heat than any other. Best wishes with your garden!
