Indian Bean Tree

This is a large attractive tree with a broad dome-shaped canopy and large long-stalked leaves. In summer it carries bell-shaped flowers in white, various pink shades, and soft apricot-orange, followed by clusters of long, pendulous, bean-like seed capsules, hence its common name.

Perhaps tropical in appearance they make ideal subjects for parks, gardens, and avenue planting. They are very fast growing.

Prefers sunny positions and is perfect for larger gardens. Whilst it prefers a rich moist soil, it can tolerate dry periods.
