description:
This medium sized tree has much-divided, ash-like leaves which are rich golden colour when young, maturing through yellow to yellowish-green as they mature. They then become orange/yellow in autumn. Fragrant white flowers, though sparsely produced. Stems can be thorny.

cultivation:
Best in fertile moist, well drained soil but tolerant of poor soils and periods of drought. Dislikes very wet or waterlogged conditions.

May be susceptable to a viral disease that affects trees in some areas.

Can be pruned if required, preferably in autumn.

usage:
Very popular ornamental tree. Often wrongly planted in small gardens, though it soon needs a reasonable space.
