Description

Bolusanthus speciosus (tree wisteria) is a small deciduous tree, which can grow up to 7 m (23 ft) tall. Between September and October, when the tree has no leaves it begins to bloom, with lilac blue flowers. Later it produces a seed capsule, the grey pods contain 3-8 smooth, bright yellow or brown seeds. The tree is also grown in gardens due to the attractive flowers. The wood is very hard, heavy and yellow in colour. It can be used for axe-handles, wagon spokes and fencing poles.

It is native to KwaZulu-Natal and Northern Provinces (of South Africa), Eswatini, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Type: Tree

Height: 7m, 23'

Hardiness zones: 10-11

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Scarify the seeds (lightly scratch) with sandpaper or carefully with a knife, to allow water to penetrate the outer shell of the seeds. Soak for 6-10 hours, and then plant. Keep in a warm room for germination. Germinates in 14-30 days. If no growth appears check the seeds to see if they are swelling (absorbing water) and if not, then scarify the seeds a little more so water can enter, and then replant.
