Archidendron lucyi - Salmon Bean

Flowering in December

Seed pod formed in January

Split seed pod in April


Salmon Bean forms a striking display of flowers and seed pods that emerge on short stalks directly from the tree trunk. For the remainder of the year you can enjoy the canopy of large glossy green leaves.
