Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Koelreuteria prefers well drained soils, but will adapt to poor compacted soils. Seed pods are great for dry flower arrangements. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

The fruits are three sided papery pods often called Chinese lanterns.Photos Courtesy of OSU Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture and Sooner Plant Farm. Order now, supplies are limited. You will not be billed until tree is shipped.
