Dalbergia sissoo - Indian Rosewood

This listing is for 10 seeds of Dalbergia sissoo.

D. sissoo is a medium to large deciduous tree with a light crown which reproduces by seeds and suckers. It can grow up to a maximum of 25 m  in height and 2 to 3 in diameter, but is usually smaller. Trunks are often crooked when grown in the open. Leaves are leathery, alternate, pinnately compound and about 15 cm (5.9 in) long. Flowers are whitish to pink and very fragrant. Followed by pods that are oblong, flat, thin, strap-like 4–8 cm long containing 1–5 flat bean-shaped seeds. They have a long taproot and numerous surface roots which produce suckers. Young shoots are downy and drooping; established stems with light brown to dark gray bark to 2.5 cm  thick, shed in narrow strips; large upper branches support a spreading crown.

This is often used in cottage industries where the long lasting ban on the export of its near relative (Dalbergia latifolia) has forced the craftsmen to switch to the more common tree.  Easy to grow as a plant in the open (in warmer areas), as a potted or containerised shrub or even as an unusual specimen for bonsai culture, where the fragrant flowers will still readily form.
