One of the most beautiful flowering trees in existence, it is native to Madagascar, but naturalised widely in the southern hemisphere, where it excels in a warm climate in well-drained soil, but elsewhere also make a perfect conservatory or warm glasshouse plant.

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.
