Common name orchid tree
Family fabaceae
Life cycle tree (Z8-11)
Flowers white
Size 8-10'
Light sun
From seed germinates at room temperature; may need scarification
detailed seed-starting info below

From what I've gathered on the internet, this is an Asian version of our native Anacacho orchid tree, but with both leaves and flowers on a smaller scale. If my seedlings grow up to any useful size, I'll report back with a better comparison.

We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet. (click here for a full list)
