Koelreuteria paniculata or commonly known as ‘Golden Raintree.’ Golden raintrees provide landscape interest pretty much all year long. Good green pinnately compound incisely lobed leaves, followed by the long, airy sprays of color; it’s one of the few trees to feature yellow flowers that erupt in a glorious cascade all over the canopy in early to midsummer. Then come the seed pods (like tiny paper lanterns) changing green, to yellow to brown. And when the wind blows, the dried seeds make a rain-like sound moving inside the pods. Goldenraintree stands up to heat, harsh climates and city pollution equally well. You often see them as street trees in urban environments, patio trees, and as a focal point as a specimen or planted in groups. They grow up to 30 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide, and hey make great filtered shade trees where you have limited space.
