Gymnocladus Chinensis

I've ordered seeds of this tree with the intention of growing them here in Castle Rock, CO at an elevation of 6,200 ft. Kentucky Coffee Tree does well here but the only information I've found online regarding its Chinese cousin, Gymnocladus Chinensis, is spotty at best. Anyone have experience with this tree at all? Germination, seedling care, growth habits, etc?

I really can't say honestly. It seems to me, anecdotally, that many Asian counterparts to North American species end up slightly smaller, and a bit less drought tolerant than the American cousin, but otherwise rather similar.

RE: Gymnocladus Chinensis

I did come across a blog that says it's grown successfully in Adelphi, MD which is a zone 6b. I'm at 5b here in Colorado so I'm hoping it works out. Thanks for your reply!
