Description

This fast-growing tropical tree bears attractive sprays of the unusual, pure white, parrot-bill flowers (usually red). Later appear the huge seed pods, resembling flat, long, thin green beans. The tree thrives under full exposure to sunshine and although best grown in hot countries will do well in a large pot in good light indoors. Indigenous from Malaysia to North Australia, it is cultivated in many parts of India where it has a large number of traditional uses.

Sowing Advice

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and 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 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
