VERY strange growth pattern, leaves & alien seedy type things

I have had my fuschia (I call her the Red had lady) I bought her about 5 years ago. I cut it down, cover it up over winter watering occasionally. She comes back every year (although not like the beautiful hanging basket it was when I bought it)
This year there is some very strange growth going on. A branch has regular looking leaves for the fuschia and even a flower, then the rest of the branch turns into what looks like a weed. The stalk is different, leaves are way different and the tip of the branch has this weird seedy stuff on it. Remember the normal looking fuschia plant is also attached to this alien thing as well.

The leaves are larger, not smoothed edged, have a pattern of brown in them

What is happening to it?
