Karoo Boer Bean Tree

This is a Karoo Boer bean or Karoohuilboer from Africa. It is grown as an evergreen landscape plant in some parts of the deserts of North America. I was fascinated by the large red seed pods. I understand that the seed pods dry out and then explode, shooting their seeds at quite a distance from the tree. From my own standpoint, I do not see planting this type of tree in my own yard. I have no need of exploding plants.
