    Too seldom seen, this scrambling, slightly spiny shrub, which can also be trained to climb, bears sizeable, attractive white flowers, some 2-3 inches across, with delicate, most attractive, pale purple stamens, which are continuously replaced in profusion, making a constant dazzling display from May onwards.

    A show-stopping bloom of five-petaled, perfumed yellow flowers bloom in 8-18" pendulous, terminal racemes covers the tree with profuse bloom. Leaves return as the flowering progresses, although it is often considered to be semi-evergreen because of this brief loss of leaves. A second less significant bloom often occurs later in the season but without loss of leaves. It will tolerate light brief frost, but can get damaged if frost persists. It is the national flower of Thailand, its yellow flowers symbolizing Thai royalty, and is also native to India, Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and is well-known for producing a show-stopping bloom of yellow flowers in May, June and July. There are also many traditional medicinal uses known from Asia.

    These long-lived evergreen trees, native to the Mediterranean areas and into the Middle East, have dense foliage which is shiny, green, round and leathery, new growth being bronze coloured. In summer, male and female flowers open on different trees (dioecious), and as a rule planting at least five trees will usually guarantee at least one of each sex, for pod production as it is widely cultivated for its edible pods, and also as an ornamental tree in gardens. The ripe, dried pod is often ground to carob powder which is used as a substitute for cocoa powder. The word Carat, a unit of purity for gold alloys, was derived from the word carob, due to the uniformity of the seed size. ... Learn More
