Eccremocarpus scaber

 

Chilean Glory-flower

Flame-orange and red flowers spring to autumn, sometimes, even into early winter. The plants are not hardy but in mild regions they might survive - dying down in winter and reappearing the following year. In very mild, sheltered areas the foliage can remain all winter. Otherwise they should be treated as annuals.
