Description

This medium sized fast-growing tree with bright pinnate sunny yellow foliage, turning lime green throughout the summer until the autumn when the foliage turns golden yellow before falling. Racemes of white pea-like fragrant flowers show in late spring and early summer. The flowers are followed by smooth brown seed pods that are also interesting. This attractive specimen tree will grow in most positions but prefers a sheltered area, likes well drained soils and tolerates chalky soils. It provides a dramatic splash of colour throughout spring, summer and autumn. A beautiful, upright tree which will grow to approximately 8 x 4 metres in 20 years.
