Saraca asoca is a small evergreen tree with large heads of orange-red flowers which are hightly perfumed at night. Its principal constituents are a steroid component and a calcium salt. The bark of Saraca indica contains the estrogenic compound ketosterol. The bark has a stimulating effect on the endometrium and ovarian tissue, is useful in menorrhagia due to uterine fibroids, in leucorrhea and in internal bleeding, where ergot is indicated. It is well established for its effectiveness in menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea. It also has a stimulatory effect on the ovarian tissue and may produce an oestrogen-like effect that enhances the repair of the endometrium and stops bleeding. The leaves have been known to be used in uterine and uterine related indications. Helpful in managing conditions involving menhorragia (fibroids), bleeding hemorrhoids, hemorrhage, dysentry. Var. Bijuga - smaller size tree, very compact in container.

Young leaves are deep pink color and emerge at the end of the branches like hanging tassels. This distinctive feature occurs in all Saracas and other close-related species and genera, including Amherstia, Brownea and Maniltoa (Handkerchief Trees, with hanging out light pink or white young leaves).

Schizolobium parahyba, Brazilian Fern Tree, Brazilian Fire-Tree, Tower Tree

Click to see full-size image Schizolobium parahyba
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Brazilian Fern Tree, Brazilian Fire-Tree, Tower Tree
Origin: Central America
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterYellow/orange flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This quite curious tree with straight trunk and showy golden flowers can grow as fast as 10 ft meters per year, to reach up to 60-70 ft or more in natural habitat. It is an indigenous plant of the Atlantic forest of Brazil, also found in Costa Rica in regions with a well defined dry season. The tree has enormous bipinnate leaves that sometimes exceed 6-7 ft in length, so many people confuse this tree with a fern or palm. Native to tropical regions, the tree still can withstand mild frost once established.

Click to see full-size image Schotia brachypetala
Family: Fabaceae
Subfamily: Caesalpinioideae
Weeping Boer-bean, Huilboerboon, Tree Fuchsia, African Walnut
Origin: South Africa
Big tree > 20 ftSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterRed/crimson/vinous flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.Attracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdible

Schotia brachypetala is a handsome, medium to large tree with a wide-spreading, densely branched, rounded crown. It has a single trunk that sometimes branches low down.

The foliage is reddish to coppery when young, turning bright green and maturing to a glossy dark green. The flowers are rich deep red, and are produced in masses, in dense branched heads on the old wood during spring (Aug.-Nov.).

Schotia brachypetala grows easily, transplants well and blooms whilst still relatively young. On heavy soils in colder climates it can be quite slow, but in warm, frost-free areas in deep sandy soil with plenty of water in summer, it is surprisingly fast, and has been known to reach a height of 12 m in 17 years. For best results, plant in a warm sunny position, in deep, well-aerated sandy soil, add plenty of well-decomposed compost (humus) and water liberally in summer. A general purpose granular fertiliser can be used during the growing season. It is half-hardy to frost, and young plants require protection, but a well-established tree in a protected spot, should be able to withstand a winter minimum of down to -5C (23F). Bark and root mixtures are used to strengthen the body and purify the blood, to treat nervous heart conditions and diarrhoea, as well as for facial saunas. The seeds are edible after roasting, and although low in fat and protein they have a high carbohydrate content.

Schotia brachypetala - seeds

Click to see full-size image

Tree fuchsia, African walnut. Schotia brachypetala is a slow growing, handsome, small tree with a wide-spreading, densely branched, rounded crown. The flowers are rich deep red, and are produced in masses, in dense branched heads on the old wood.
Schotia brachypetala grows easily from seed, which should be sown in spring to early summer, in a well-drained potting soil, placed in a warm but shaded spot and kept moist. Soaking the seed overnight in warm (not hot) water is not necessary for germination to occur, but should hurry things along.
