For most of us, this is a good container plant to lug in for the winter but if you have that garden which only gets light frosts or that microclimate we would kill for, then this is a goody.  Native to Chile, this is in the Solanaceae and will become a 4'-6' evergreen shrub with drooping and narrowly tubular yellow flowers with long exserted stamens.  The foliage is a bit unpleasant when crushed - and only then - which makes us think it will be deer proof.  Good for a sunny position and was given the Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.
