Got this wonderful plant last year and as it had no name on it I have no idea what it is. It has lovely red lantern type of flowers that come out in summer ( nearly out now) It has dark green strong leaves, It has very strong woody branches. It seems to be growing very quickly. I dont think it is a Chinese lantern as I seen pictures and does not look like mine.Id like to know what it is so as to look after it prooperly and maybe take some cuttings.

The Chinese lantern tree is Crinodendron hookerianum. Makes a small tree eventually.
