Crinodendron hookerianum 2

Crinodendron hookerianum 2 (Crinodendron hookerianum (Chilean Lantern Tree))

Replacement for the one I killed moving it as I put this vigorous tree too close to the garage.

Ah..lovely. Same size as my new one too. Yours has more blooms though. Aren’t they a lovely shade of Red. I’m chuffed with mine.

Beware where you put it, Karen. I put mine too near the garage wall, and became scared at how vigorously it was growing till I tried to move it. ( This 50p more expensive! from the same company as the first purchase in 2015)

Ooh..I shall. Mine is in a pot and will have to stay containerised because of our winds.

Karen it is very windy here, but ours is in the ground, saw some beauties at Garden Beauty this morning.....

Yes, I was just reading up on it and they do say to protect it IF its pot grown or very young. I'll keep it in a pot for a couple of years and then if it survives perhaps I'll plant it. Thanks Sue.
