Additional Information

Evergreen foliage. Sheltered spot preferred. Crinodendron will need feeding during early spring with a balanced feed, ensuring this does not touch the stems or leaves. You may apply more feed throughout the growing season if the foliage starts to yellow. Water your plant regularly and thoroughly until it is well established or during periods of drought. Hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
