Tree Seedling. A gum, I think.

Postby abrogard » Mon Jan 12, 2015 8:05 am

Location: Murray River, South Aus.

I sometimes pick up seeds beneath what I think is an attractive tree and bring them home with the intent of propagating.

I now have a couple of seedlings in pots and, of course, I don't know what they are. Can't even remember the incident so I've no clue on what height they may reach or what flowers or profusion of seeds/seed pods they may create.

Knowing what it is would help me decide what to do with them, where to put them.

Here is one of them, sharing a pot with a friend.

I wonder if anyone can identify what they are from seedlings so young?

I don't think it is a gum. Those are compound leaves, maybe some sort of bean tree.

Aha... that could well be... I frequently pick up bean seeds... they're one of the easiest to get aren't they and that's why.

So... any advance on bean ?
