I LOVE Verawood trees. They give off a lovely yellow flower and their leaves close to sleep at night. I also LOVE a good bargain. Yesterday, I was coming home from a dental appointment, and I saw a 50% off, going-out-of-business sign at a nursery. So, I stopped.
I found 3 Verawood trees in 2 pots, which I got for $10!
So I repotted them this morning. To the left, in the big yellow pot, is a Verawood tree I bought several years ago for $25. It is lovely, but is getting sick of being in a pot. I don’t want to plant it at my current house, though, so like many of my other potted babies, I am trying to keep it healthy until we move, so I can plant it then and there.
I have a little one that sprouted from a seed from a pod on the original tree. I planted this one last year.
This is what a seed pod looks like. They grow on the tree after the yellow flowers depart.
They aren’t as easy to sprout as I thought, though. I put 7 seeds in 7 pots, and only 1 sprouted.
