Tolerant of drought, heat, wind, and clay soil, what else can you throw at it? Pollution, yes, even pollution. In spring, sprays of light yellow-green flowers cover the tree. The frond-like leaves emerge pinkish-bronze to purplish, mature to bright green in summer, and in autumn turn brilliant yellows and even oranges and reds! Large ornamental lantern-shaped seed pods in late summer festoon the branches; first yellow-green, then light pink, then dark brown, remaining after the leaves fall for an intriguing silhouette. 35' x 35,' a lush, dense, shade tree.
