Crinodendron Hookerianum is an exotic-looking, ornamental, evergreen shrub or small tree with elegant, narrow, leathery, dark green leaves. Very attractive, lantern-shaped, crimson to carmine-pink flowers on long stalks hang loosely from branches in late spring to late summer. Flower buds form in autumn, go through winter, and bloom in spring. The fruit is green to tan capsule. Crinodendron Hookerianum thrives in fertile, humus-rich, acid soil, moist but well-drained, in full sun or partial shade. It needs protection from cold winds. Roots must be kept cool and shaded. Frost may damage young flower buds. Pest-free and disease-free. Crinodendron Hookerianum is a stunning plant that can bring an exotic feel to any garden. Great as a specimen plant, for beds and borders or wall-side borders. Ideal for woodland gardens, but also city and courtyard gardens. In colder areas, best to grow in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
