Why Hummingbird Trees?
The Hummingbird Tree (Sesbania Grandiflora) is a living optical illusion. At first glance, its clusters of bright red flowers resemble a group of fluttering hummingbirds hovering around your tree. Hummingbird Trees can produce blooms in varying hues of red, white and pink, and this red-flowering variety will pack a colorful punch in your home or yard.
Its thin, straight trunk diverges into loose branches with fern-like fronds in a vibrant green. Bright red flowers are followed by green fruit pods that grow up to 23 inches long, complementing the tree’s droopy canopy look.
In hot, humid climates like its native Southeast Asia, the fast-growing Hummingbird Tree can reach up to 40 feet tall. If you choose to keep it in a pot (perfect for cooler climates), cutting back new growth will help it maintain a more patio-friendly size. But don't worry - you’ll get to admire its famous blooms even in miniature form.
The Hummingbird Tree, or Sesbania Grandiflora, is also known as the Vegetable Hummingbird Tree - that's because its leaves, flowers, and fruits can all be consumed. Enjoy them raw, or toss them into soups, stews, and stir fry dishes for extra nutritional value. The Hummingbird Tree also has medicinal uses, beloved in Southeast Asia for teas and salves.
This bountiful tree will attract birds and pollinators, and its timber can even be used for woodworking. As a fully grown tree, it provides excellent shade for seating areas or low-growing plants at its base.
