Maroon Bell Bean Tree (markhamia zanzibarica)

Striking, bell-shaped flowers bloom in creamy-yellow with maroon petals and neck flecks. What makes these little delicate flowers unique is that they erupt from the old wood, like the trunk or branches. Pollinated flowers will slowly transform into spiraling, twisted bean pods and dangle from the tree until they pop open to release flat winged seeds. In its native habitat the pinnate leaves with fine toothed margins are enjoyed by local elephants. A really nice mid-sized tree that only grows to about a max of 28 feet when mature, allowing it to be recommended for smaller urban landscapes and gardens.
