Ec­cre­mo­car­pus scar­ber (Chilean glory flower) This fast grow­ing ex­oti­clook­ing climber has dark green, finely di­vided fo­liage with ten­drils which help it quickly climb up trel­lis, arches or over other shrubs. Its yel­low, or­ange or red tubu­lar flow­ers are freely pro­duced from early sum­mer through to au­tumn with its dark green fo­liage form­ing the per­fect back­drop. Although tech­ni­cally an ever­green it only re­ally re­mains above ground in win­ter in the mildest lo­ca­tions. More gen­er­ally, if planted in a shel­tered spot, it will re­gen­er­ate from the base each spring in­creas­ing in size and vigour each year. Ec­cre­mo­car­pus can also be treated as an­nu­als, flow­er­ing from mid-sum­mer on­wards or grown in con­tain­ers.
