Ornamental Tree with Unique Winter Appeal

The Golden Rain Tree is a deciduous tree valued for its beauty and durability. Use one as a small shade tree in your yard or perhaps as a patio tree
Your Golden Rain Tree will first catch your eye in the spring with its new foliage. Golden Rain Trees are amongst the splashiest of spring bloomers with its late butter-yellow flowers, one of the few to show this color.

As the leaves turn to their summer bright green intensity, small ½ inch flowers cluster on 15 inch panicles. The tiny yellow flowers with their red centers will seem to blanket your tree in a golden raiment, which will later “rain” down to carpet the ground beneath it.

Your Golden Rain Tree can reach 40 feet in height with an equal or greater spread. Branching is upright and irregular forming a rounded crown that is lovely in any landscape conditions. As autumn approaches, your Rain Tree will surprise you a special gift.  2-inch papery clusters, like tiny Chinese lanterns will dangle among the branches, turning a delightful pink-orange shade and continuing into winter. Fall also brings orange-yellow color to the leaves.
The Golden Rain Tree would be a splendid addition to your landscape. Its hardy nature and spring show make is a valuable addition to any yard. However, its unique winter appeal truly makes it a must-have for your home.

AMAZING Review by Sharon
Upon receipt, this looked like a tall 'stick', but within only TWO days, the top was full of leaves. We have it in an enormous planter for the time being. I need to cut down 2 pine trees that are much too close to our home and I'll have room to plant this beauty! I can't wait to see what it looks like next summer; I love these trees!
Concerned at how prolific the tree is. Review by Irish
Always wanted a "Chinese lantern" tree but concerned about it growing any where and every where.
Yellow flowered trees Review by Yarder
Not many yellow flowered trees that are this pretty for a smaller yard. Mine really fits in nicely.
Summer blooms Review by Kate
Nothing much blooms in my neighborhood during the summer except my Golden Raintree. I like this tree more every year.
Growing a pole? Review by katy
My very young raintree has lost all his branches for the past 2 winters. It looks great in the summer and has grown to be at least 8 feet tall. Is this normal for a raintree?
