Size

One of the first things you'll notice about this evergreen tree is the large chestnuts attached to the bottom of it. Pretty and interesting as they may be, they're toxic if ingested. These trees can grow up to 35 metres in the wild, but as a house plant it peaks just shy of 2 metres.

This tree is part of the Fabaceae family and is native to Australia where indigenous communities used it to make animal traps and spears.

Coming from down under, this tree loves the warmth and loathes the cold so aim for a temperature between 18 and 25C. Remember to wipe its leaves down regularly to remove dust.

    Returns

    If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 30 days by emailing hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk or live chat if online. Please attach a photo of the faulty or damaged plant. Other items can be returned for a refund within 30 days as long as they're unused and in re-saleable condition.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
