Family: Proteaceae
Chilean Fire Bush
Origin: Chile
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

In late Spring to early Summer it becomes a solid mass of beautiful, fiery red, tubular flowers held in loose clusters. The deep green, lance shaped foliage is evergreen. Itís a slow grower for the first two years, so you might want to keep it in a container for at least a year. Chilean Fire Bush wants deep, loamy, not too rich, well-drained soil and doesnít like animal manure. Shelter from cold, drying winds. An outstanding specimen tree.
