Description

Crinodendron hookerianum, Chilean Lantern Tree is a highly-ornamental medium-sized evergreen shrubby tree with small lanceolate foliage and very showy red bell-shaped flowers. The waxy flowers hang down from the leaf axils in Spring and really do resemble exotic lanterns. It requires a moist humus-rich acidic soil and a warm sheltered shady location that provides it with protection from both the sun and the worst of the winter frosts.
