Common questions about growing Lagunaria

1. What is the common name for Lagunaria?

The most common name for Lagunaria is Norfolk Island hibiscus. It is also known by a number of other common names, including:

Lagunaria is native to Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island, two small islands in the Pacific Ocean. It is a popular ornamental tree in many parts of the world, due to its attractive flowers and foliage. Lagunaria is a fast-growing tree, and can reach heights of up to 15 metres. It has glossy green leaves and produces large, showy flowers in shades of pink, white, and purple.

2. What are itchy bomb trees?

Itchy bomb trees, also known as Lagunaria patersonia, are small trees or shrubs that are native to Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island in the Pacific Ocean. However, they are also widely cultivated in other tropical and subtropical regions of the world.

Itchy bomb trees are known for their large, showy flowers that can be pink, white, or purple. They also produce small, round fruits that contain seeds that are covered in sharp hairs. When these hairs come into contact with human skin, they can cause a severe allergic reaction that can result in intense itching and a rash. This is why the tree is known as the itchy bomb tree.

The itching is caused by a chemical compound called lagunarin. Lagunarin is a type of irritant that can cause inflammation and irritation of the skin. The severity of the reaction can vary depending on the person's sensitivity to lagunarin. For some people, even a small amount of contact with lagunarin can cause a severe reaction.

If you come into contact with itchy bomb tree seeds, it is important to wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. You can also apply a cold compress to the area to help reduce inflammation and itching. If the reaction is severe, you may need to see a doctor for treatment.

3. How do you care for Lagunaria patersonii?

Lagunaria patersonii, also known as the Norfolk Island hibiscus, is a relatively easy-care tree. It is tolerant of a wide range of soil and climate conditions, and is a good choice for planting in coastal areas and urban areas.

Here are some tips for caring for Lagunaria patersonii:
