Fuchsia macrostemon, Ruiz et Pav., on the right, is the wild parent of our hardy varieties; above it is the blue Puya with orange anthers, the orange balls of the not unfamiliar Buddleia globosa, Lam. a pale purple Lupin, a yellow Chloraea, and the crimson Ourisia coccinea. Immediately below the last the orange heads of a species of Boopis ? (Calyceraceae) succeeded by the rosy Mutisia (M. decurrens ?) and the white-flowered Winter's Bark (Drimys Winteri, Forst.). Lying on the table are the purple brown Bomarea Salsilla, Mirb., a lilac and yellow Solanium , the pure white Libertia ixioides, Spreng., and Pernettya mucronata, Gaud. The greenish white pea-flower is Lathyrus macropus, Hook. The leaves of Buddleia globosa are a universal remedy in Chili for all kinds of wounds and sores. They are roasted, pounded, and made into poultices and plasters.
