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.
