About three decades ago I visited Seaborne Nursery up in the Lake Hodges area of San Diego County. It has long since vanished as a nursery. A fellow who ran this nursery, Bill Seaborne (now deceased) convinced me to try a few of this interesting species. I planted them and within about five to ten years found they have the most peculiar, large and irregularly swollen trunks. The leaflets are quite fine; but the trunk is massive. It has a green snakeskin type of texture and is a fast growing tree. The leaflets are narrow and a green color. I have a few 15g trees and some 5g plants for sale. The 15g size is shown here and on Special. I am also showing you pictures of mature trees off the Internet. This species is not known for flowers, but rather for its peculiar swollen trunk. It can get to fifty feet tall, likes sun, and has a cold tolerance that is probably into the low 20’s F. The 15 gallon on sale are about 8 feet tall in their pots and too big for mail order. For the latter, consider our 5 gallon size which are in stock.
