SKU Code: ES 3-10g
Characteristics: Deciduous tree to 20 m
Seed per gram: Approx. 6
A fast-growing medium-sized deciduous tree has an erect stem with spreading branches and fragrant fluffy yellowish flowers that develop on lateral stalks in rounded clusters 5 to 7.5 cm.
Native to Asia and Northern Australia.
Tolerates a wide range of soils, and prefers well-drained soil in an open sunny position but will tolerate partial shade. It is drought, wind and frost tolerant but should be protected from drought and frost while young.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C.
Seeds germinate readily, however, they do have a hard outer coating which is impervious to water and generally germination will usually not occur unless the seed is scarified by abrading or pre-treated with boiling water first.
General note: Seeds of many species are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
