Silk Tree is a winter hardy, tropical looking member native from Iran through Japan. This species makes most ornamental, Mimosa like, finely feathered, large foliage, which folds back during night. It makes numerous whitish rose flower balls in early summer. This deciduous tree adapts well to any rich, well drained soil in full sun.
Sow flat in any sandy, well drained soil in early spring. Keep pots outside in a sheltered spot. Plant out to the garden as soon as seedlings are strong enough in summer. In the first years give some good winter protection, e. g. a thick dry mulch layer. In regions with a colder climate, keep pots with seedlings in winter sunny, cool and frost free at some 5°C.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7.
