    What's the correct spelling of the word for 'a vivid reddish or pinkish purple color'?

    Is it Fuchsia, Fuschia or Fushcia. The web can't seem to get it right either. Maybe someone on here can help.

    Vivid red to me is scarlet or crimson.  Pinkish-purple is mauve.  Fuchsia is a hot pink, like the flowers I have in my yard or the color I used to dye my hair a few years back.  (And notice I spelled it like your first option)

    My Mac dictionary only validates fuchsia.  Some words require double-checking every time, don't they?

    If you are referring to the word fuchsia, this is the correct spelling since it was named after a German botanist by the name of Leonard Fuchs. Variations are caused by the English vs German pronunciations.

    Check dictionary.com.
    Fuchsia is the correct word - it says - "a bright, purplish-red color".
    The other two or non-existing words.
