Eucryphia glutinosa (nirrhe) is a species of flowering plant in the family Cunoniaceae, native to moist woodland habitats in Chile. It is a large deciduous shrub or small tree, growing to 10 m (33 ft) tall by 6 m (20 ft) wide, with glossy dark green leaves turning red in autumn. Single (or occasionally double) four-petalled, fragrant white flowers with prominent stamens appear in late summer.
The hardiest of its genus, it is a popular subject for cultivation in parks and gardens, valued for its foliage and late flowering. It requires moist, acidic soil with roots shaded from the sun. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit
