Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A very unusual variety of the much wider known species, Crinodendron ‘Ada Hoffman’ is one of those choice specimen shrubs which can’t fail to attract attention. It forms a large, evergreen shrub clothed in leathery, deep green, narrow leaves. Even when not in flower, it makes a handsome feature. But the real show starts in late spring when it produces extraordinary lantern-shaped, pendulous flowers in a delicate shade of pale pink, which hang elegantly from long stalks. The thick-petalled, waxy flowers are produced over many months, continuing until the end of summer. A very special and unique plant for a sheltered spot in acid soil.

Ultimate height: 4–8 metres (13ft – 26ft). Ultimate spread: 2.5–4 metres (8ft to 13ft)

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Height Up to 400cm (13ft)
Spread Up to 250cm (8ft)

Plant in fertile, well-drained and fertile soil in partial shade or sun, as the roots will appreciate being kept cool and shaded as it prefers a sheltered position behind a wall for example.
In the late winter, feed with a fertilizer which is slow releasing, and add mulch around the shrub with ericaceous compost, leaf mould and pine needles. Remove any damaged or dying branches to help flowering for the following year.
