The "Chilean Lantern Tree" is truly one of the world's most attractive plants you can ever grow. Garden visitors seeing the heavy bunches of attractive, crimson, waxy urn-shaped pendent flowers in early summer just cannot wait to rush into our plant nursery to buy one for themselves, and we can rarely grow enough to supply demand! Finally, large, attractive seed pods holding large seeds appear in August and September.
Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
