Embothrium coccineum

Chilean fire bush, Notro, Ciruelillo, Fosforito

Price: €19.95

An unforgettable site when in full flower in early summer. The Chilean fire bush, as it is commonly known, is a much prized and unusual large shrub or small tree. It has masses of scarlet flowers, even at a young age, and can grow to a height of 10 - 20 m. However, it is not for every garden, as it requires milder conditions with a degree of shelter - it grows very well in coastal counties in Ireland. Further inland it requires a very protected spot. It requires moist but well-drained acidic/ lime free soil.  3L container, 20-25cms. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
