Golden Raintrees give you an incredible show... all year long!
When the leaves first bud out in early spring, theyíre a unique pink-red color, and eventually turn a deep green.
Then come the long, airy sprays of color.
Itís one of the few trees to feature yellow flowers that erupt in a glorious cascade all over the canopy in midsummer.
The show gets even better when the seed pods start to form in late summer. They turn a deep, rich orange and look like tiny, golden-orange paper lanterns!
But donít let their delicate appearance fool you. These versatile champions stand up to heat, harsh climates and city pollution equally well. You often see them as street trees in urban environments and as fabulous focal points in groups of three to five in landscapes. Plant them 25-30 feet apart.
They grow up to 30 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide, so they make great shade trees where you have little space.
Golden Raintrees give you dense shade, but also make incredible flowering trees that can be the focal point of your landscape.
