Adenanthera pavonina, also called Red Lucky Seed, is a fast-growing, non-climbing species of leguminous tree that has multiple uses, including nitrogen fixation, forage cultivation and as an ornamental plant. This tree is highly valued for its spreading canopy and ability to provide shade, making it ideal for large gardens or parks. The hard, scarlet seeds of Adenanthera pavonina are known for their use as beads in jewelry and for their almost identical weight, which historically made them an ideal unit of weight for fine measures. The seeds also have medicinal uses, with extracts having antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects according to preliminary scientific studies. Additionally, the wood of this tree is extremely hard and is used in boat-building, making furniture and as firewood. Adenanthera pavonina is a versatile and beautiful addition to any garden or landscape and is sure to impress.
