A Chilean genus of two species, both evergreen shrubs or small trees, with alternate leaves, and solitary, bell- or urn-shaped flowers produced on pendulous, thickened stalks from the leaf-axils. They both delight in a cool, moist, peaty soil, or loam, and can be increased by cuttings of half ripened wood placed in a close frame with gentle bottom-heat. Excellent and attractive shrubs in the milder counties, they need protection near London.
