It is not only the beauty of the flowers that creates interest in this tree, but also the unique appearance of its fruit and the lovely, palmately compound leaves. This is an unusual and quick growing tree for warm gardens. It is not frost tolerant and prefers well drained soils and a relatively high rainfall.
