    GLIRICIDIA SEPIUM

    This medium-sized shrub or small tree produces a generous quantity of flowers, its arching branches often being weighed down by the densely packed racemes of fragrant, nectar-rich pink blossoms. With a medium-sized, open crown it is particularly valued for its use as a shade and support tree, as a producer of green manure and forage crop in plantations, and when cropped down is even established as living fences.

A very valuable multipurpose tree and important component of various agroforestry systems, it is often cultivated in many tropical countries of Central and South America, S and SE Asia, the Pacific islands and Africa where it serves as a pioneer species to establish new sites. ...

    Although it can be a relatively fast-growing evergreen tree, this plant is often grown as an annual for foliage effect, making a bushy shrub to 3m, clad in attractive, olive-green, fern-like leaves which are paler beneath.

Before the advent of aluminium, its timber was widely used for external window joinery, as it is resistant to wood rot and it has been used in the manufacture of furniture, cabinetry, fences and guitars. It has also gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. ... Learn More

  11. HORSE CHESTNUT

    In spring the spectacular trusses of pink and white flowers hang between the huge distinctive leaves, which have five or more long leaflets. The common name "horse-chestnut" originated from the erroneous belief that the tree was a kind of chestnut, (it is only distantly related), and that that eating the fruit cured horses of chest complaints despite this plant being poisonous to horses. In Britain and Ireland, the gorgeous, very large and highly polished seeds are used for the popular children's game conkers, when the seeds are drilled, threaded onto string and used to hit another's "conker" until one breaks, the "looser"!. The large seeds are said to repel spiders although there is little evidence to support these claims. This lovely flower is the symbol of the city of Kiev, capital of Ukraine. ... Learn More
