Maackia amurensis (Amur Maackia) [15 Seeds]

$3.50

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some experimentation and patience.

One approach is to sow the seeds about 1/4″ deep in fall or winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can germinate when conditions are right.

It is also possible that these seeds could germinate if you start them in warm, moist, bright conditions, particularly if you carefully nick the seedcoats, pour hot water over the seeds, and let them soak for about 24 hours before sowing in a warm, bright place.

Description

Amur maackia (Maackia amurensis) is a relatively slow-growing deciduous tree, usually maturing around 20 to 30 feet tall, with pinnate compound leaves and an overall rounded form. Its very best feature, I think, is its silvery new shoots; they are so elegant. They mature to a rich green color, looking very different than in spring. In summer, this member of the pea family produces short, upright clusters of small, white flowers appear at the shoot tips, followed by flattened seedpods. The bark of Amur maackia is very handsome: a deep coppery brown that is somewhat shiny at first, eventually exfoliating in interesting patterns. This very uncommon but easy to grow tree is reported to be very adaptable, tolerating a wide range of growing conditions. Full sun. Zones 3 or 4 to 7 or 8.

Harvested in 2019. At least 15 seeds.
