This tree is native to the Alps and the mountain of Italy and the Balkans down to Albania.
It has naturalised itself in various localised places in Britain.

Before we had a huge range of woodstains, the heart-wood of this plant was often used as an Ebony substitute since it is very hard and a dark chocolate brown.
The sapwood is butter-yellow.

Golden chain tree plant is very toxic: especially fruit ingestion which can be fatal.
It contains alkaloids, the action of which is similar to that of nicotine contained in tobacco.
In Germany, this leaves were consumed as tobacco.

Then water gently with a hand sprayer.

Germination usually takes 4 to 6 weeks.
Finally, transplant your plant into garden.
