zone 4b / very rare and attracts pollinators.

Small tree rarely reaching more than 15 m in height and considered rare in its natural range in the USA. The Yellowwood is very pretty with its rounded and irregular shape. Its bark is gray and smooth. The white flowers are hanging panicles 20 to 40 centimeters long and give off a nice fragrant smell. The fruits are in the form of brown pods later in summer. Its leaves are composed of seven to nine alternate leaflets of a fairly light green while the autumn foliage is orange-yellow. It is a little-known tree and must be protected from strong winter winds. Our seedlings come from a beautiful tree growing in the Trois-Rivières region. It’s up to you to discover this magnificent species. Hardiness recommended for 4b and above.

IMPORTANT: We do not deliver trees 7' and over! (Nursery pickup only)
