    Description

Albizia odoratissima - Ceylon Rosewood

This listing is for 10 seeds of Albizia odoratissima.

This is a fast growing deciduous tree from the Indian sub-continent.  It grows to 30 metres or so tall with a large spreading crown out to 20 metres.  It can grow up to 1 metre in height annually and develops a substantial trunk with a dark heartwood surrounded by a lighter less dense sap wood.  Used in India and Sri Lanka for furniture and carving, it is a cheaper more readily available source of 'rosewood' (as opposed to the rarer and slower growing true rosewoods - Dalbergia).

Extensively planted in many places as a useful, as an initially fast growing shade tree. It is quite a decorative tree and carries large clusters of small white or yellow scented flowers followed by flattened seedpods. 

Hardy to Zone 9 it is tolerant of light frosts. In habitat it is subjected to temperatures ranging from just below freezing to over 50 Degree Celsius.
It has become widely naturalised in sub-tropical areas such as Florida and Southern Texas.  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.  Additionally it is excellent at fixing nitrogen in the soil making it an ideal companion for Santalum album (the true Indian Sandalwood).

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
