It is an attractive tree with fine feathery foliage and a profusion of brilliant red or orange flowers in clusters that cover the tree in late spring.

Flowers are followed by large dark brown pods up to 30cm long containing the seed.

It is an extremely hardy, attractive tree for warm climates.

Native to Madagascar.

Adaptable to most soils with good drainage and warm conditions. Tolerates poor soils, drought, and frost resistance.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia, seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoiding the coldest and hottest months. The optimum germination temperature for this species is around 20-24°C.

Seeds germinate readily. However, they have a hard outer coating impervious to water. Generally, germination will normally not occur unless the seed is scarified by abrading or pre-treated with boiling water first.

  1. Place the seed in a container, pour in just boiled water, and allow to soak overnight.
  2. The swollen seed can then be sown, and seeds that have not swollen can be re-treated.
  3. Sow the depth of the seed and keep it warm & moist but not wet.
  4. Germination should occur in 14-28 days @ 20-24°C.

General note: Seeds of many species are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they are discarded.
