  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained soil, humus-rich acid soil
  • Rate of growth: initially slow-growing
  • Flowering period: May to August
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    A beautiful, ornamental, evergreen shrub or small tree named after the lantern-shaped, crimson to deep carmine-pink flowers, suspended from the undersides of its branches from May to August. This award-winning lantern tree is perfect for a partially shady woodland garden with humus-rich acid soil. Initially slow-growing, in cold areas it's best grown in a cool greenhouse or conservatory to minimise the risk of frost damage to the young flower buds.

  • Garden care: After flowering lightly cut back any shoots that spoil the symmetry of the plant.
