Sophora japonica seed

Common name:Styphnolobium japonicum seeds

It is an upright, broad-spreading tree that grows as wide as it does tall, forming a lacy canopy of dark green, pinnate leaves. Fluffy pyramidal panicles, or clusters, of creamy white-green, fragrant flowers appear in summer, followed by green “pea pods”. Leaves turn yellow in fall, but are not considered consistently ornamental. Its younger branches remain olive-green through winter, adding seasonal interest.

Preferring full sun and well-drained soil, Japanese pagoda also tolerates pollution, making its several cultivars a good choice for urban landscapes.

Japanese pagoda tree makes a beautiful shade tree in large lawns or along city streets
