Anyone grow Crinodendron hookerianum?
I just picked up a 1 gallon Crinodendron hookerianum. It's a beautiful shrub. I don't have photos yet (it's mostly in bud) but I give a link to other's photos below.
I'm curious if anyone has any experience with this plant--how fast does it grow, particular problems it's prone to, how to propagate it, etc. Any info would be great.
I got it at last weekend's Strybing Arboretum sale (I think it was $9). I also saw a larger plant at Roger Reynold's nursery in Menlo Park a few weeks ago, probably in the $40 range.
