|Upright oval to round-headed tree with golden yellow leaves consisting of 3 elliptic to elliptic-oblong leaflets up to 3 inches long. Produces fragrant yellow 3/4 inch flowers on 6 to 10 inch pendant racemes in late spring. Usually grown for its showy flowers. Remains fairly small so is a good addition to a smaller yard. Although excellent in flower, it will need a facer plant in time as the lower branches are lost.
