Buy Toona sinensis 'Flamingo' Chinese mahogany: A scented and very decorative, multi-stemmed tree

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy (borderline)

    A deciduous, often multi-stemmed tree, which makes a fine specimen in a sunny garden. In spring, the big, pinnate leaves emerge a bright salmon pink and gradually change colour to creamy yellow and later rich green in summer. The clusters of greenish-white, cup-shaped flowers that appear in summer seem to dangle from the ends of the branches and are loved by insects. All parts of the plant are scented and the wood is often burnt in temples in Eastern Asia to infuse them with its delicate scent. The timber is also valuable for making furniture as it is very durable and easy to work with.

  • Garden care: In late winter or early spring, lightly cut back any branches that spoil the symmetry of the plant and apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.

Slow growing.


This tree has a lovely shade of pink leaves when it comes out in spring. Turning to green by summer. But it is very slow growing. As an experienced gardener gave it the best conditions. But still surprised at how very slow growing it is.

Hi I just bought a Toona Sinensis from Waitrose Garden which seems to have come from Crocus. It is in a 12m pot, but are no leaves Or branches on it all. There are some small buds on the trunk but no foliage or branches, Is this normal?


Yes, these plants look very bare during the winter months as they shed all their leaves in the autumn. Also, these plants are not always multi-stemmed, but if the do develop more stems, it will be as the plants become better established.
