Millettia peguensis, also known as Tuna, is a legume tree species , around 12-15 mt tall. Leaves are pinnate and leaflets oval in shape. The trunk is straight and covered with smooth grey bark that flakes off in small irregular patches. It is really beautiful when in full bloom. It blooms with racemes of mauve pea-like flowers in spring & early summers
Millettia prefers warm, dry climate. The plant prefers fertile, well drained but moisture retentive soil and moderate watering. Tree becomes leafless in winter, specially in dry areas
It is used as gardening commonly but they can serve for medicinal purposes also.
Plants with thin leaves need daily watering and ones with thick leaves need watering 3-4 times a week. This will also depend on the season. Generally during the blooming period, plants love a lot of water. Try keeping the soil moist. During winters it is better to cut back on watering.
Keep the plants in a well drained soil with a drainage hole at the bottom. This will help to avoid over watering. Take care as to not leave stagnant water on top of the soil. Fertilise the plant once in 2-3 weeks during its blooming period. Do not fertilise it in winters.
