Pictured is Calendula officinalis 'Citrus Smoothie'. Calendulas are sometimes called Pot Marigolds, but don't confuse them with Tagetes which are also called marigolds. Picture taken October 22, 2010.

Pictured here is Fuchsia triphylla 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt', growing outdoors in a pot at Purdue Horticulture Gardens. In the same pot but not in this picture is Fuchsia 'Paula Jane', a hybrid Fuchsia. Picture taken October 22, 2010.
Fuchsias are members of the Onagraceae family along with the evening primroses.
