Laburnum x watereri

Golden Rain Tree

Reminiscent of Wisteria, these trees' pendulous, bright yellow flower clusters grow up to 20 inches long. Olive-green bark and bright green compound leaves add to their ornamental beauty. Their brown leathery pods last until winter. Excellent as accent trees in mass plantings. However, plant where children and animals cannot reach toxic seeds and 3-part leaves. Tolerates city conditions. Trouble-free where hardy. Shelter trees from drying winter winds and hot afternoon sun. Prune after flowering. Mulch to keep soil moist and cool. Remove brown seedpods to promote tree's health.
