One of the woody plants that we recommend to people if they want to be garden showoffs.  (and really, who doesn't have a little of that?)  This has the most outrageous red hanging lantern flowers - we just never fail to be thrilled by the sight. Narrow willow-like evergreen leaves on this Chilean which likes a cool sheltered spot. Two of our favorite plants locally are on Capitol Hill in Seattle and a 25 year old plant at a friend's garden near the Hood Canal Bridge.
