Embothrium






EMBOTHRIUM COCCINEUM.--Fire Bush. South America, 1851. This is a

beautiful shrub, of tall growth, with flowers of great interest and

beauty. Except in warm and favoured situations, it is not very hardy,

and should always be grown as a wall plant. The fiery scarlet,

orange-tinted flowers, resembling somewhat those of the Honeysuckle,

are very beautiful by the first weeks of May. It grows to about 6 feet

in height in southern England, and is, when in full flower, a shrub of

unusual beauty.
