If anyone wants some seeds from the Golden Rain Tree in the pic above, PM me your (USA only) mailing address.

Easy to grow, no special treatment or scarification of the seed needed. Bees love them.

When do yours bloom and if a guy planted the seeds in crappy soil, how long might it be before it bloomed. I did google it and their are apparently three differrent kinds and some are not as good with cold wether.

Thanks

My neighbor planted his 10 years ago, but can't remember how many years ago they started blooming, but he says it was a few years ago. I don't think he did much to fertilize them or anything, so I don't know if good compost would speed it up any......

And I have no clue what kind these are, someone gave him the seeds years ago and he just tossed them out in his yard.

These ones bloom first week in June, at least that's when I took the above picture.

Seeds are all gone.
For everyone that has them, I think they need 90 days of cool/moist stratification. I just put mine in a few buckets of dirt and leave them out all winter and they germinated in spring.
