Albizia lebbeck, black wood |

Albizia Lebbeck (Hindi: शिरीष sirīs), or black wood from the stockings is a species of tree in the Fabaceae family, originating in tropical regions of southern Asia and widely cultivated and naturalized in other tropical and subtropical regions.

5 seeds - My germination method: Stratification with hot water 90 ° C 5 seconds, then pour cold water, Let the seeds soak in hot water 24/48 h before sowing.

Albizia Lebbeck is a tree that reaches 18 to 30 M high with a trunk of 50 CM at 1 M in diameter. Its very dark and dense wood is sought after for Tournerie1.

The leaves are deciduous. They are bipénées, from 7.5 to 15 CM long, with one to four pairs of Pennes, each penne having 6 to 18 leaflets.

The flowers are white, cream or pale greenish yellow, in egrets, with many stamens from 2.5 to 3.8 CM long. The flowers are melliferous, very fragrant but allergens1,2.

Fruits are straw -colored pods from 15 to 30 CM long and 2.5 to 5.0 CM wide, containing six to twelve seeds. They rustle in the wind2,3. The seeds are essentially dispersed by Zochoria, the digestive juices of the cattle scarifying them2.

The species can have an invasive character. This is particularly the case in New Caledonia4, where it was introduced as Umbridge tree in the Caféières1,2.
