The large leaves of this domed tree, which is sometimes broader than it is tall, are divided in numerous toothed leaflets which turn yellow in autumn. Large, branched heads of small, scented, yellow flowers in late summer, are followed by inflated seed pods.

Thrives best in full sun and is fairly drought tolerant. Adaptable to most soils.

Easily grown from seed but quite slow growing, taking many years to reach full size.

Good town garden tree.
