null If you're looking for something spectacular and exotic that is extremely easy to grow, be the first one in your town to showcase this tree on your lawn. This member of the pea family features bluish, fern-like, compound leaves made up of rounded oval leaflets. In late spring, when the foliage is still a fresh apple green color, dark pink wisteria-like clusters of blooms hang gracefully from the new branches. Their strong and sweet fragrance of honey and roses attracts insect pollinators in droves while the bright pink appeals to hummingbirds. Scarce, 4-7 cm knobby and leathery seeds pods persist on the trees through the winter, adding to interest.
The fast-growing tree has a semi-columnar habit, up to 15 m, and casts a light shade, which makes is ideal for planting in areas where grass or ornamental plants are to be grown beneath the canopy. These same qualities can be exploited when making a multiple-trunk planting.
Very tolerant of poor, dry and compacted soils once established, it is often used in xeriscaping.
