|This is a rounded, open deciduous shrub or small tree with spiny shoots. Grows to 30 feet tall and wide. Dark green leaves are pinnate to 8 inches in length, with up to 19 ovate to oblong leaflets. Violet-pink to deep pink, fragrant flowers, to 3/4 inches long are held in pendant racemes, to 6 inches in length. Followed by warty, brown, seed pods, to 4 inches long.
Though a good street tree, it really should not be used close to power lines where mature, hard wood has to be pruned in order to keep a nice form.
