Like rows of long Christmas hats for tiny elf-santas, these native shrubs are unmistakable in full flower - which is midwinter when our gardens need a shot of bright colour. You can see why they get their common names of fuchsia heath - a heather with fuchsia flowers - and cigarette flower (filter tip, naturally).
