I would like to know if the big pink leaf with dark pink veins are part of the Fuchsia Mrs. John D. Fredericks or if it is another plant mixed only as decorative motive?

That type of leaf is very beautiful.

Hi Philipa. Do you have a photo we can see?

I believe they are referring to the first and fourth picture listed on the database:
Fuchsia 'Mrs. John D. Fredericks'

I think it is another plant in the pot. I believe the fifth picture on that page is what the plant looks like alone.
But I know less than nothing about this plant... Sticking tongue out

Yes it might be another plant mixed there, it looks to pretty to be true... Just wanted to be sure about it.

Unfortunately, it is too pretty to be true. I think the other plant is a Caladium.

I agree pirl loves mixing in caladiums into her plantings, especially in complimentary colors.

Zuzu I think you are right.

I didn't know Caladium plant. Then I feel sorry for the fuchsia because the leaf was what catched my attention :P

Thank you for giving me the name of the plant :D
