Description:

One of the most beautiful tree with fern-like leaves, and long-lasting, bell shaped blue flowers, open in large inflorescence, followed by quirky, round, flat seedpods. It will flower in a large pot, keeping it in a conservatory or in a sunny room for the winter and on the patio or in the garden (in pot) for the Summer. It is not frost tender, however the trees seen on the pictures were taken in France (near Perpignan), where low temperatures down to 0 C and high winds are frequents in Winter. It requires a sunny position, otherwise it will grow leggy. We have small seedlings for sale which will start to grow quickly now. Our plants are from seeds of those trees on the pictures, therefore the seedlings have some good cold tolerance.
