An ideal and unusual addition for the warm or hot exotic garden, this tree, whilst still leafless, has up to 20 dense heads of attractive and unusual reddish-green to orange flowers hanging from the branch ends and dripping nectar. Finally the fruits, elongated and flattened pods appear.
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. Another effective and cheap, although still more laborious method, consists of making a small notch in the cleared part of each seed with nail clippers or a small knife.
