Chile Alerce Andino Coicopihue flower
Can anyone tell me what this flower is called? I think it is the national flower emblem of Chile. OK apparantly its Copihue (Lapageria rosea) only the red one is the national emblem. See "And the glory of the lord" comment below. Oh! ok apparantly the latest theory is "coicopihue" (Philesia magellanica) which is smaller see Desde Chiloe below and Leon Calquin.
