Description Germination
 
An unusual evergreen shrub with smooth thick leaves with a silvery reverse.  Dense clusters of star-burst like blossoms bring in the nectar seekers.  Fruits ripen to a dark blue in clusters at the end of pale stalks...reminds of of fireworks!  There is the occasional rebloom in the late summer/early fall.  Nice cinnamon coloured bark that resembles Arbutus from a distance. Fast growing multistemmed shrub when established.  Indigenous peoples of Chile consider this plant as a symbol of peace and often planted it near their homes.  Bark is used medicinally and smells very spicy (sweet cinnamon/anise) much like magnolia/liriodendron roots.  Grows to 2-3m in height 2-3m wide. Survived our minus 12C winter with some dieback.
