Caesalpinea ferreae (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Caesalpinea ferrea (Fabaceae) One of the most attractive trees from Brazil, the leopard tree is so named because of its beautifully marked bark. It has attractive, acacia-like foliage that is rosy red when it emerges in spring, and bears yellow flowers in summer. This deciduous tree casts such a light shade that it is possible to grow grass beneath it. Sowing: The seeds must first be soaked in hot water, left overnight and planted the next morning in seedling trays. Cover the seeds lightly with river sand and keep moist. Placing a clear glass over the seedling tray can speed up germination. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: August 2023
