Add structure and elegance to your garden with the Chilean lantern tree (Crinodendron hookerianum) – an evergreen shrub that develops into a tree with glossy green leaves all year round and attractive weeping crimson flowers in abundance from May until August.

The impressive Chilean lantern tree wants to spread its wings once in the ground and likes rich, moist soil (incorporate some farmyard manure if your soil is shallow or dry) to grow in. Given these requirements your plant will thrive in either sun or shade and add structure to your garden and welcome height.

Useful Tip:

We recommend that you plant nearby spring-flowering bulbs or primroses so you have a bit of flower colour before your Chilean lantern tree blooms in May. By planting crimson tulips or crown imperials nearby you get an impressive complementing display.
