A rare sight in our area, the Chilean fire tree (Embothrium) is stunningly spectacular when it explodes into bloom. See this example on Ashworth N just north of N 188th. Another tree is just right of the Volunteer Park Conservatory. Embothriums are picky about their location, but the otherwise non-descript tree needs no additional care to flower.
