A delightful shrub or small tree with pinnate, scented foliage and upright flower spikes with large, deep yellow flowers.
Apparently it is originally native throughout most of Africa but is widely naturalized throughout the tropics in USDA Zones 10 and above and also a very popular plant in cultivation for its showy flowers. Germination: Scarify seeds. Soak for 24 hours. Sow seeds about 1/4 inch apart in a seed tray. Cover the seeds lightly with soil (about the depth of a seed), lightly press down the soil and water. Place above ground level in a warm, humid, partly-shaded area. Keep the soil moist but not wet.
