  Golden Raintree in the desert southwest garden
Golden Raintree

Golden Raintree

Beautiful, colorful tree that grows 30 to 40 feet in height. Moderate grower, requiring full sun and regular watering.

The Golden Raintree's flowers are fragrant and a very showy yellow, appearing in June to July. Followed by lantern-like, papery seedpods, which turn a rich brown in the fall with leaves turning a nice yellow.

This tree is really worth planting in the desert Southwestern garden and does very well in the desert heat.

Can be kept small, so it would be great for patio gardens or anywhere an ornamental tree is needed.
