You are purchasing an established seedling in a tube.

Lovely medium sized tree with open crown. New growth is flushed with purple and hands down like a handkerchief. Flowers several times a year with large clusters of orange flowers from both the branches and trunk. This saraca tree is a nectar feeders paradise. It attracts a wide range of butterflies (including Ulysses and Cairns Birdwing) as well as nectar feeding birds.

In Asia Saracas are called "The Sorrowless Tree" as Buddha was believed to be born under one.
We are selling seedlings in tubes.  One of my all time favorite plants!!

Flowering Season Flushes year round from the branches and trunk.
