Adenanthera pavonina Seeds Red Sandalwood Tree

Red Sandalwood
Adenanthera pavonina
Also known as Red Bead Tree and Red Lucky Tree

Rounded green leaves and wide spreading branches grace this small to medium sized tree. As the tree ages, brown bark slightly peels adding interest to the grayer smaller branches. Scented, small, star-shaped flowers are followed by bright red, shiny seeds that are often used in crafts and necklace making. This tree makes a most interesting bonsai project and also grows well as a container plant for the home or greenhouse in addition to being a specimen plant.

As with any plant, caution should be exercised about leaves or seeds and whether or not the plant is meant to be ingested. Seller is not responsible for buyer’s use of plant.
