Sesbania Grandiflora
Also known as: The Scarlet Wisteria, Australian Corkwood, and the Hummingbird 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 10 meters 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 than 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 trees are sometimes called 'Scarlet Wisteria' because they somewhat look similar in pictures. This one by far is our favorite out of the two!

Choose from packs of 20, 100, or 500 seeds!
