Native to SE US, the Yellowwood is a deciduous tree with lush, pinnately compound leaves of bright green, yellow in fall. In 8-10 years you'll be rewarded with wonderfully fragrant long white panicles in spring that cover the tree like so much wisteria. A legume, the flowers will be followed by entertaining long, flat, brown seed pods that make for an exotic look. Round crown, typically 30-50' tall, 40-55' wide - a terrific shade tree!

Minimum temperature: -30° F
