Price: €13.95

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. 30-40cms tall plants in a 2L container. Only available in our Dunboyne shop. Although generally in stock, they may be sold out at the time of your visit.
