Amur Maackia (Maackia Amurensis) 10 seeds (#336)

Soothing dark green foliage is one asset of the amur maackia, additional qualities of bronze bark and creamy white summertime flowers also adds to its landscape value. Native to northeastern China, this tree has pretty, flaking bark that is bronze upon spreading branches that create an open, but rounded crown.
The young spring foliage is a ghostly light green and becomes a rich dark green or olive green and casts perfect shade. The leaf is compound - made up of five to seven pairs of oval leaflets. In very late spring or by midsummer the branch tips bear attractive upright clusters of creamy white pea-shaped blossoms that smell of freshly cut grass. Flat seedpods follow. There is no fall foliage display but the leaf drop better reveals the luminescent bronze tones of hte smooth bark that peels and flakes.
Grow the underutilized amur maackia in full sun in any friable (not compacted) soil that is moist but well-draining. It is tolerant of both acidic and alkaline soils, especially if fertile. Use it as a small shade tree for parks and yards or for the lining of a boulevard. (source: learn2grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Pre-soak the seed for 24 hours in hot water.
2. Sow it in a cold frame in the autumn. The seed can also be pre-soaked and sown in late winter in a greenhouse or inside.
Sow 6 mm (1/4") deep. Keep moist.
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.
