Chinese Maackia (Maackia Chinensis) 10 seeds (#483)

Chinese maackia is a small, rounded, shrubby, deciduous tree that typically grows in cultivation to 20-30’ tall. Erect, spike-like clusters of fragrant, dull white, pea-like flowers bloom in late spring. Flowers are followed by elliptic seed pods. Compound, odd-pinnate, dark green leaves (11-13 leaflets each) are attractive in summer but produce no fall color. Leaves emerge silvery gray-green in spring. Coppery-brown bark exfoliates on mature trees. This tree is very similar to M. amurensis, except its leaves have 5-6 pairs of obtuse leaflets, its leaves are pubescent beneath and its flowers are slightly larger. This tree is most closely related to the slightly larger yellowwood.
Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Prefers full sun. Adapts to a wide range of soil conditions.

When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Root cuttings 4 cm long in December. Good percentage.
