Descriptions

  • Hechenleitner et al. (2005)
  • Marticorena (2005)

Habit

A deciduous shrub of 1-2 m tall. Flowering from October to February

Key characteristics

This species could be confused with the C. vitifolium but the latter tends to grow much taller and has larger leaves that are 10-14 cm long (compared to 3.5-7m cm in C. ochsenii) and with the upper surface having star-like hairs (instead of simple hairs). C. vitifolium also has bigger petals, 4-4.5 cm long (instead of 2-3 cm long)

Notes

Seed of this species is banked by the national seed bank of Chile, INIA.
