Golden Chain tree (Laburnum Anagyroides) 25 seeds (#26)

Brilliant and cheerful strings of yellow flowers drape down from the branches of the golden chaintree in late spring. It is a delightful, spreading small deciduous tree from southern Europe (France to Croatia). In spring the newly emerging leaves are hairy and gray-green and eventually expand to the mature dark green color. There are three oval leaflets on each compound, trifoliate leaf. By late spring the sparsely-spaced branches are loaded with bright yellow pea-like blossoms that dangle together in variable-length strings (racemes). Small pods of toxic seeds follow if the blossoms were pollinated by bees.
Plant golden chaintree in a full to partial sun situation in any average, fertile garden soil with good drainage. Holding its sparse branches quite upright, it has a tendency to drop or abort its lowest ones. It will perform much better in gardens that are not hot in the summer, including having more long-lasting blossoms. In regions with great temperature variation between winter and summer this tree will likely be short-lived. Remove seedpods as they form so the tree focuses its energy on leaf and stem growth. Grow it as a specimen tree or as part of the mixed border or a residential foundation planting. (info source: learn2grow.com)

Propagation:

3. Plant the seed 6 mm (1/4") deep.
4. Place a slow-running hose near the seed and water the soil until the planting area is moist to a depth of 20 cm (8").
5. Cover the planting area with a 5-8 cm (2-3") layer of organic mulch. Scoop away the mulch directly over the seed. (info source: eHow.com)
