Albizia lebbeck - Woman's Tongue Tree

This listing is for a packet of 20 seeds of this tree.

Albizia lebbeck is a species of Albizia, native to Indonesia, Malayasia, New Guinea and Northern Australia and widely cultivated and naturalised in other tropical and subtropical regions. English names for it include Lebbeck, Lebbek Tree, Flea Tree, Frywood, Koko and Woman's tongues Tree. The latter name is a play on the sound the seeds make as they rattle inside the pods. Being one of the most widespread and common species of Albizia worldwide, it is often simply called "siris" though this name may refer to any locally common member of the genus.

It is a tree growing to a height of 18–30 m tall with a trunk 50 cm to 1 m in diameter. The leaves are bipinnate, 7.5–15 cm long, with one to four pairs of pinnae, each pinna with 6–18 leaflets. The flowers are white, with numerous 2.5–3.8 cm long stamens, and very fragrant. The fruit is a pod 15–30 cm long and 2.5-5.0 cm broad, containing six to twelve seeds.

Hardy to Zone 10, so only suitable for outdoor culture in the warmer parts of the UK.  Elsewhere use as pot specimen to go out in the summer or to be used in the conservatory/ greenhouse.

Also makes a stunning bonsai tree and training can start in the first year from seed, so ideal for those impatient to see the results of their efforts.

Very easy from seed, the germination rates are very high for this species, providing the seed coat is 'damaged' to allow the seed to take on water.  Full growing instructions can be downloaded via this link - Growing Instructions
