A close but much rarer relative of the "Chilean Lantern Tree" from the cold region of Patagonia in South America. Pretty sprays of fragrant, frilly white bell-shaped flowers appear in late summer followed by red, locket-like seed-pods, which persist into late autumn.
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.
Common name:White lantern tree, Lily of the valley tree
