Note the characteristic green tubular calyx on this species, out of which the red buds emerge like lipstick out of a tube.  A. lobbianus has a similar habit, but with dark maroon tubes, and the hybrid of that species and this one is called A. 'Pullobia'.  Photos of A. pulcher growing at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh can be seen here and here.
