Fuchsia procumbens is a native New Zealand ground cover and is the smallest fuchsia in the world. The species is naturally uncommon but can be found growing on sandy, gravelly or rocky places near the sea in the North Island from North Cape to Maunganui Bluff on the west coast, and to the northern part of Coromandel Peninsula on the east coast. The creeping fuchsia has multiple slender branches with small lime green leaves and upright yellow flowers that appear in September. The bright red edible berries occur not long after- in winter.

In terms of planting this delicate fuchsia is frost tender but can do well in sun and shade. Because of its creeping nature it is best to plant with 1m spacings.
