Goldenrain Tree

Aspen Tree DL(Koelreuteria Paniculata)

A beautiful medium sized ornamental tree that is great for open, sunny spaces.  It has a single stem with a rounded habit reaching approximately 30’ in height by 30’ wide.  It makes a good street tree that is fairly compatible with overhead wires.

Goldenrain Tree is a native of China and the Korean peninsula and adapts well to most well-drained soil types here in the U.S.  It has pinnately compound leaves with a feathery appearance and a yellow-green color in the summer followed by a nice yellow-orange fall color.

The main attributes for this tree are the 8-12” golden panicle flowers during June and July in the Mid-Atlantic region.  They are usually a show stopper when in bloom, and a favorite of bees.  When the blooms are finished they are followed by an attractive paper lantern style fruit that will persist until winter.
