Brilliant golden-yellow pinnate leaves are lovely against a dark background, or awash in low morning or evening light. It's a beacon in the landscape and works well as a shade tree that doesn't cast dark shade. This tough tree grows 35 ft tall x 25 ft wide. Panicles of fragrant white flowers make it a refreshing, delightful tree. While well-drained soil is its preference it will tolerate less ideal situations.
