Crinodendron hookerianum 'Ada Hoffmann'

Chile lantern tree

2 litre pot £24.99
  • Position: partial shade (or full sun if their roots are kept cool)
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil, humus-rich acid soil
  • Rate of growth: initially slow-growing
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Dainty, dusky-pink, bell-shaped blooms hang like lanterns from the stems of this elegant evergreen shrub from late spring to late summer, while the dark green, waxy leaves provide a stunning backdrop. It makes a wonderful addition to mixed borders in milder regions throughout the UK.

  • Garden care: After flowering lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant. Protect from excessive cold and frost in more exposed gardens.
