Styphnolobium affine (Eve's Necklace)
Eve’s Necklace is a graceful tree with soft looking foliage and light pink fragrant blooms that are somewhat reminiscent of wisteria blooms that are followed by black seed pods that look like a string of beads or a necklace.
Eve’s Necklace requires well draining site, and it looks best when grown alone as a specimen. It is heat tolerant and can handle alkaline soil as long as provided good drainage. It is an excellent understory tree and should be used more.
