Lantern Tree

Crinodendron hookerianum

Crinodendendron live up to their name of lantern tree.

They are a stunning sight when the evergreen foliage is enlivened with bright red lanterns which hang from the branches. The flowers hang from the branches from late spring, all the way through to late summer. The effect is quite magical.

This starts as a slow growing shrub which does get rather tall, so be careful when picking it's final planting place!

This is a must-have shrub for a garden in mild areas where it will add interest to a partially shaded spot.

Low maintenance. Prune to shape only when necessary. Protect from strong winds. The foliage can become damaged in cold spells but will generally recover well.

When shopping can be good for the planet

We've taken care to source the greenest products to sell in our shop. That includes making sure that they're not overpackaged, or that they're made from recycled goods, so that they don't add to the waste mountain.

We also watch our waste at the Eden Project, recycling as much as we can, and even turning the food left overs from our cafes into soil through a giant composter!
