This superb dwarf shrub bears attractively divided pinnate foliage and extremely exotic yellow-petalled flowers with huge scarlet stamens. In warmer countries it makes a magnificent tree or shrub, whilst in colder countries it is perfect for the conservatory but may be tried against a warm south-facing wall.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Germination usually occurs within 4 to 6 weeks although some seeds may take much longer.
