Common name: Chilean heath
Gaultheria mucronata: Chilean heath, from Tierra del Fuego, where it takes full coastal conditions which are very inhospitable. Note its tough, leathery leaves. It belongs to the Heather family and is dioecious, therefore needing a male plant amongst the female ones in order for them to produce those lovely berries that stay on all winter because the birds don't find them tasty. These plants used to be part of the Pernettya species, which has been merged with Gaultheria.
