Sesbania Grandiflora Also known as the Scarlet Wisteria, Australian Corkwood, and the Humming Bird Tree
This is another one of Mother Nature’s artful creations that is highly ornamental and versatile, from Asia and Australia! This hard to find tree is amazingly quick growing to only about 10meters in height, with a straight trunk. Makes a great tree for smaller yards.
November-June it creates a floral canopy of rather large 3-4" distinctively curved, rose colored blooms. These flowers are absolutely gorgeous to see in person. Seedlings can bloom clusters in as little as 1.5 years even potted, and less then 4' tall! It is frost tender and intolerant of long periods of cool temperatures. So if your concerned, keep it potted and bring it indoors, you will still get your blooms. Also said to be flood tolerant.
The flowers and leaves are edible and served up many different ways, even fried and dipped in butter. The bark, leaves, gum, and flowers are considered medicinal in many ways as well.
Not to be confused with Sesbania Punicea, which both tree's are sometimes called 'Scarlet Wisteria' because they somewhat look similar in pictures. This one by far is our favorite out of the two!

Not a single seed of the 20 germinated. I even followed directions to file and/or nick the skin of the seeds first. This was my first purchase through Etsy. Very disappointed!

Thank you! The seeds arrived quickly, in the correct quantity and look good. I waited a week to nick, soak, and plant due to a cold snap last week. Can't wait to see them germinate.
