Dotty Daisy's star turn (Crinodendron hookerianum (Chilean Lantern Tree))

Crinodendron, the star, at her NGS open day. More visitors asked about this plant than any other. Spectacular.

My friend has rooted one for me as I admired it so much. It is pretty small but I am very pleased.

Linda, they grow remarkably quickly, mine bought 3 years ago is about 5 ft tall now, Dd's 12ft maybe more?

I'll be careful where I put it. Where is yours? My friend Pete's is against a wall.

Mine is west facing, near the garage wall, gets afternoon and evening sun.

Last Sunday, saw one twice as large as yours. It's made me decide I need to move mine before it gets any bigger, in Autumn.

Peter has pruned ours to keep them at a manageable size....they can become enormous!!

This one I saw had a trunk the diameter of my leg!
