The spectacular Lily Tree (not really a lily), also known as Campanita Criolla, comes from the Dominican Republic and Cuba and is considered an extremely rare specimen plant, recommended for your green house, tropical sun room or outdoors zone 10+. It does not tolerate frost and does well in 1-5 gal containers.
Cubanola domingensis is an evergreen shrub, with shiny deep green leaves and approximate 10 inch long tubular, very fragrant, crème colored flowers with a slight green tint.
If planted outdoors, the plant needs lots of water during the summer months, and during winter, just enough water to keep the roots from drying out. This beauty needs well draining soil and does not tolerate "wet feet". Seeds take several months to germinate, but it's worth the wait. (see our 2019 seedling picture)
