From cool, moist, but well-drained soils of Chile, this creeping evergreen is a real treasure. Eye-popping vermillion tubular flowers top 8-inch stems in early summer above rounded, toothed, light green leaves (a little like a Heuchera). This little beauty will grace more landscapes once people know about it, and most assuredly the hummingbirds will find it enticing, too. It has an unusual color for a ground cover that enjoys the shade. It's evergreen, and really will accommodate sun, shade, or anything in between; what's not like?
