Bolusanthus speciosus - (Tree Wisteria)


A strikingly beautiful tree from Southern Africa, staying much smaller (under 3 feet) if grown within a shallow bonsai pot, or eventually growing (very slowly) to a height of around 5-10 feet (1-3 m) within the ground


Lovely blue-mauve, fragrant, pea-like flowers hang from the branches in bunches, often covering the entire tree, initially whilst not in leaf, during late winter through to early summer


Produces flowers very young for a tree, usually within 2-4 years and at under a foot in height!


The drooping, dainty foliage lasts for the majority of the year, falling for a couple of months during the coldest part of the year


The trees are easy to keep small (if desired) with pruning


Makes an excellent bonsai tree as the roots are very shallow, flowers young and it is easily dwarfed


Please note: full germination instructions are printed on each pack

Fantastic quality

This is the second packet of Bolusanthus seeds that I’ve purchased and they are great once again. Both sets germinated within a few days of soaking them for 24 hours. Very happy! Would recommend. A+++
