Type: Hardy tree
Hardiness zones: 5-9
Seeds per pack: 5
Location: Sun or shade. In southern/warm climates it does well with mid-day shade.
Uses: Bonsai, or standard garden (non-Bonsai) use
Dermatitis: The juice, sap, or thorns of these plants may cause a skin rash or irritation. Wash the affected area of skin with soap and water as soon as possible after contact.
Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Then plant your seeds, and warm stratify for 120 days, followed by cold stratification for 120 days. If you are starting your seeds during the cool weather, the pots can be placed in a cold garage. Once the cold period is completed, place the pots in a warm, sunny spot. You should see the first sign of germination within the next few days or weeks, depending on the variety. Generally a 10-60 day range is normal for the first signs of growth. When the seedlings are about 5cm (2") tall, remove any additional plants and leave only the strongest seedling in each pot. The removed seedlings can be planted in a garden or elsewhere if desired.
