The Chilean fire bush (Embothrium coccineum) is a beautiful flowering shrub that is native to Chile. It gets its name from its brilliantly coloured red flowers, which appear in early spring and last through summer.

This evergreen shrub grows to around 10 feet tall and wide, with a dense growth habit. Its leaves are dark green and glossy, and its flowers are bright red and borne in clusters. The Chilean fire bush blooms from late winter to early summer, with peak bloom occurring in late spring.

The Chilean fire bush is tolerant of most soil types and prefers full sun to partial shade. It is drought tolerant once established, and does not require much pruning or maintenance.
