I planted seeds of Decaisnea fargesii in May of 2011, left them outside in a pot over winter (low about 25 degrees) and they are now just germinating in May 2012! It will be interesting to find out if they will do well in Olympia, Wa.

One of the few plants with "blue" in its name that is true blue, not violet, purple etc. In sunlight bright and iridescent. In shade creates a blue cloud that really pops. Seed pods hang in clusters, they look like artificial ornaments. Great for those seeking a long lasting blue in the tree canopy. Neighbors will stop and stare, believe me! Great, fantastic looking little tree, did I mention it's BLUE?!
