Overall informationAmherstia nobilis ; the Pride of Burma, in the Fabaceae family) is a tropical tree with large, showyflowers. It is the only member of the genus Amherstia. It is widely cultivated for ornament in the humid tropics, but is very rare in the wild and has only been collected from its native habitat a few times. It is native to Burma (Myanmar), hence the common name. The scientific name commemorates Lady Amherst, (as does Lady Amherst's pheasant) and also her daughter Sarah.[1] Another common name, theOrchid Tree, is otherwise reserved for members of the genus Bauhinia.

 One package contains 1 plant, between 40-60cm tall . We ship only healthy (in pot) growing plants. We carefully remove the soil and wrap the roots in humid sterile coconut peat. Then we gently pack the rootball in a plastic bag . After that, we wrap the plant in newspaper and then in a strong cardboard box with Thai registered airmail. EMS is also possible but prices are on request.

In many cases we can provide different size and species. Please email us for more info.
