Geum quellyon - Llallante - Chilean Avens
Explanation: Well, I'm not sure but this is a possibility. There is a plant called Chilean Avens whose scientific name is Geum quellyon and Spanish (or Mapuche) name is Llallante. I don't know (and haven't been able to find out) whether it's used as a medicinal herb.
Double or semi-double vermillion flowers of "Blazing Sunset" are half again as large as most hybrids of Geum quellyon (synonymous with G. chiloense). The size & persistence of the blooms makes "Blazing Sunset" a superior choice for any garden from which cuttings will be taken for bouquets.
