Growing to an impressive 10m in height in its native New Zealand, this sun-loving tree displays drooping clusters of large brilliant yellow pea-like flowers and the deeply incised foliage common to many plants of the pea family. It will do best supported against a sunny wall where the concentrated heat will encourage flowering. At home it grows wild along river margins and so will probably appreciate keeping its toes wet, or at least very regular watering during dry spells. Few seeds collected.
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.
