Little known evergreen shrubs or trees from Chile with leathery leaves, somewhat stiff growth habit, and attractive flowers. Thrive in wet spots; take regular lawn watering but should be watered deeply once a month to encourage deep rooting. Need good drainage.Crinodendron patagua
Somewhat like evergreen oak in general appearance; sometimes called flowering oak. To 25 ft. tall and almost as wide, with upright branching and a rounded crown. Leaves 2 1/2 in. long, dark green above, gray green beneath, with irregular toothed edges. Bears hundreds of 3/4 -in.-long, bellshaped white flowers in summer, sometimes into fall. Blossoms are followed by attractive cream-and-red seed capsules that drop and can be messy on paving. Tends to be shrubby; or some branches may turn down while others stick up. Early staking and pruning are important in training as tree.
