Care Information

Planting Advice for Chilean Lantern Tree (Crinodendron hookerianum)

  • Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained acid soil. Prefers partial shade or in sun where the roots can be kept cool and shaded.
  • Prefers a sheltered position ideal for a woodland garden.

 

Aftercare Advice for your Chilean Lantern Tree

  • Blooms form from the autumn so provide frost protection where necessary over winter in more exposed positions.
  • In late winter, feed with slow-release fertilizer, as well as some sulphate of potash, then mulch around your shrub with ericaceous compost, pine needles or leaf mould.

 

Pruning Advice for Crinodendron hookerianum

  • Pruning can be done in spring or autumn after flowering, when you can lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the shape of the plant.
  • Remove any dead or damaged branches and thin out to let light in to the centre of the bush to help flowering the following year.
