A very fast-growing semi-deciduous tree that produces new foliage in late spring followed by a heavy crop of spectacular rosy-pink flowers in dense clusters.
The flowers are followed by long dark-brown cylindrical seed pods that hang from the crown.
Native to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
Prefers humus-rich soil in moist soil in a protected sunny position, drought and frost tender.
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.
Cassia 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 with sandpaper or pre-treated with boiling water first.
General note: Seeds of many plants are dormant and may require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Please 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.
