Embothrium coccineum 'Norquinco Valley' is said to be among the hardiest selections of Chilean flame bush. It comes from a river valley which begins in the interior of southern Argentina. We have grown it now for about six years and our specimen came through a week of single digit temperatures in early December with no loss. Our specimen is about six feet tall and only a few feet wide. The dense clusters of brilliant, waxy flowers really do excite visitors to our garden. The evergreen, narrowly lance-shaped leaves measure 5 inches in length.

Late spring and early summer.  30 ft. x 15 ft.

Scarlet flowers

Part Shade     Zones 8, 9, 10, 11
