Description
 
Quite the uncommon small evergreen tree to large shrub that has tiny little red flowers cladding the stems which individually are a bit of nothing but in their multitudes are really kind of fun. Native to Argentina through Chile down into windy Patagonia, this has not been trialed much here but is growing at the Arboretum in Seattle. Zone 8. Previously received as Maytenus chubatensis and offered as such but finally plowed through some South America floras and wait a minute - it's Maytenus magellanica! We down widdat since it is actually nicer and hardier.
