Given the right conditions Crinodendron hookerianum is a strong growing evergreen shrub of upright habit and long dark stems clothed with narrow, willow-like leaves. The pendent crimson flowers open in May, having been apparent for several months in the tight bud stage. They are urn-shaped and borne singly on long stalks from the upper axils. Its main need is for acidic, moist soil, especially during the growing season, and it should not be allowed to dry out during summer droughts.
Plant type: Evergreen shrub
Flower colour: Pink
Foliage colour: Dark green
Sun exposure: Full sun, Partial shade
Soil: Well-drained/light, Acidic, Sandy
Skill level: Experienced
I have one of these beauties growing here in my garden in Bury, Lancashire, it's 5 ft tall and doing well, however.. I have discovered two flowers which seem to have developed a group of what I can only describe as "pearls" in a brown seed pod... are these seeds?... or fruit?.. there is nothing on the internet about this.. can anyone help?. Thanks, Chris.
