They are a magnificent tree - especially when in full bloom. We also call it the 'Black Bean Chestnut' - native to the eastern coast of my state.

HD was selling these just a few years ago. And in small 2"-6" pots. I would need an estate to plant them,Jacaranda's Delonix,African tulip tree's, Brachychitons,Cassia's,..and the rest I wish I could try.

And after HD had them?..never saw them again the last 2-3 years. Whats common one year..might be the last for a long time.
