Mostly Fuchsias are shrubs, like F. magellanica, which is naturalised in many places; I've seen it often in New Zealand gardens and once as a wild plant in Co. Cork, Ireland.

In New Zealand, we have two unusual species, F. excorticata, which is a small tree, and F. procumbens, which is a softly woody creeping vine. Fuchsia flowers usually hang down, but if F. procumbens flowers hung down they'd drag on the ground, so instead they're erect. At this time of year, creeping Fuchsia has large red berries.
