Discover the rare Gymnocladus chinensis, also known as the Chinese Coffee Tree, Soap Tree, Yunnan Bean and Kentucky Coffee Tree's Chinese relative. With substantial branches and doubly compound leaves starting purple and shading to green, it's a beauty to behold. It flowers in April and produces thick, flat pods in October, which are high in saponins and are used as a natural soap for washing fabrics and the body. The wood is also hard and durable, making it perfect for cabinet making. This deciduous tree grows up to 12m and fixes nitrogen, making it a fantastic addition to any garden. Due to its rarity, don't miss the opportunity to own this unique and eye-catching tree.
