An unforgettable sight when in full flower in early summer. The Chilean fire bush is a much-prized large shrub / small tree. Evergreen foliage, long thin leaves and masses of scarlet flowers even at a young age, it can grow to an ultimate height of between 10 and 20 metres. Fast-growing, it requires moist but well-drained acidic to neutral soil, and does best in sheltered locations relatively near the sea. Further inland, it requires a sunny, sheltered location. Irish-grown plants, 2 litre pot, 20-30cm in height.
