- Maackia is a genus of 11 species of flowering plants in the family Fabaceae, native to eastern Asia. They are small to medium-sized deciduous trees typically growing 10-15 m tall. The leaves are compound pinnate, with 7-17 leaflets. The flowers are fragrant, white, yellowish, or greenish, produced in racemes 5-20 cm long. The fruit is a pod 3-8 cm long, containing one to six seeds. The genus is related to Cladrastis, differing in having the leaflets arranged in opposite pairs, the buds not being hidden in the leaf base, and in the twigs not being brittle. Maackia was named after the botanist Richard Maack. ⁕Maackia amurensis Rupr. & Maxim. Northern China, Korea, northern Japan, southeastern Siberia. ⁕Maackia australis Takeda.
