(Silk Tree, Persian Silk Tree, Collective Happiness Bark, He-huan-pin)  Native to Asia and especially the Himalayas, the silk tree is soft and comely on the landscape with the characteristic flattened branches and long-lasting, frilly, oversize flowers.  Traditional usage: sedative and tonic, antidepressant, intestinal worms, subcutaneous lesions.  The wood is dense and strong.  Plant prefers sun and moist but well-drained soil, but will withstand drought and high winds and is quite resilient.  Nick seed and drop in just-boiled water and allow to soak overnight.  Plant about 1/2 inch deep and keep in bright light and warm conditions with even moisture.  Germination takes about 1 week.  Seedlings should be pricked into gallon pots and grown out for a year before transplanting to landscape.  The tree also is quite comely if left in a pot, but in that case the tree should be moved to a larger pot after the first year.  In large pots, these are elegant.
