I saw this at the Home and Garden show where I bought a few things on impulse, and Fabiana imbricata was definitely impulse! It was so unique and exotic looking, so I looked it up on my phone using my data network and it seemed to fit my zone (8b) but it's native range is Chile. So, I went out on a limb and gave it full sun, and the next spring it bloomed great. The funny thing is that after the initial full bloom, it keeps popping a few flowers out later in the year. I saw some bees wander and land on the tubular flowers. It has an eye-catching architectural, spiky form. It grows at a moderate rate.
