Rare and unusual! "Chilean Lantern Tree". One of the world's most attractive shrubs that can be grown outdoors in USDA zones 8 and warmer, and will withstand cold temperatures down to about 20°F (-6 to -7°C). In colder zones, it should be overwintered in a frost-free place. Leaves are evergreen, alternate, oblong, 1-3' inches long, dark-green on the upper side, pale-green on the underside. Flowers are axillary bell-shaped and pendant flowers. They are red, unscented, solitary or grouped in pairs. They appear from mid-spring to late-summer. The fruit is an inedible capsule that splits open when ripe.
