This Chilean native shrub or small tree is grown primarily for its foliage, which has much divided, distinctly fern-like dark, rather grey-green leaves. It has reddish-brown young stems that are velvety to the touch. There are also short racemes of pink and salmon-brown flowers, which sit closely on the branches and look curiously beautiful. It grows best in moist or even damp soil, and prefers a sheltered, shadier spot. 40-50cms tall plants in a 4L container.  Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.  (A)​ (M)
