This is absolutely my biggest bugbear of all time! The word is FUCHSIA! Any other spelling is completely wrong! It's a flowering plant. It is named for Leonhart Fuchs .. and like so many plant names it is formed by adding 'ia' to the end of a person's name (often, but not in this case, the name of the person who originally discovered the plant) Therefore the spelling is FuchsIA - surely once you know that you'll never get it wrong again - will you? :Shttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuchsia
