The Golden Rain Tree has several long clusters of bright gold flowers on the end of each flowering branch. The tiny flowers of the Golden Rain Tree bloom in mid-summer, from June to July. When fully grown the Golden Rain Tree tree grows large and round. The Golden Raintree Shade Tree is popularly planted 15 at a time.
The Golden Raintree Shade Tree is a medium-sized shade tree that produces a remarkable floral display in June and July, in a cascade of brilliant yellow flowers produced in enormous panicles. The Golden Raintree turns bright yellow in the fall. Inflated decorative seed pods turn from pale green to pink as Summer progresses are very ornamental. The spring yellow flowers of the Golden Raintree are followed by Chinese lantern shaped oriental seedpods.
The Golden Rain Tree is a fast growing flowering tree that reaches twenty-five feet at maturity. The bright yellow flowers form huge clusters usually over one foot in diameter. After flowering the Golden Rain Tree flower clusters change into very attractive lantern clusters with that exotic oriental look. Each lantern contains seeds that birds and squirrels feed upon during the winter. In July when the lanterns first form they show color transition from pink to yellow, and then in late fall become a chocolate brown in color. Most homeowners consider the lantern formation more aesthetically pleasing than the initial yellow flowering in June. The Golden Rain Tree was originally introduced from China into America by president Thomas Jefferson from his planting the seed at his Monticello estate in Virginia, and many Golden Rain Trees are still growing and thriving there. These trees are often used by cities to plant in parks and recreational areas and especially along roadways where they easily absorb car exhaust fumes and automobile noise. The Golden Rain Trees are easily adapted to a wide range of soil types, and they also withstand cold temperatures as far north as Wisconsin.
