Sophora are subtropical to tropical woody shrubs or small tree with mostly green branches and clusters of white to yellow, white or purple pea-like flowers. All are easily grown in pots or containers in any rich, well drained substrate in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter reduced watering and keep at a minimum of some 10°C. Some species (eg. Sophora secundiflora) are winterhardy with some good winter protection around their root system.
Prior to sowing scarify seed (e.g. carefully scratch the seed coat with fine sandpaper) and soak them in luke warm water for some 48h. Sow in any well drained substrate at some 20°C to 25°C throughout the year and in a sunny spot.
All are USDA Climate Zone 9, unless not stated differently.
