A spreading tree with fine dark green foliage cut into oval leaflets. But it is for the long racemes of brilliant golden-yellow flowers that this tree deserves a place in the garden. In late spring and early summer it is smothered with pea-like chains of flowers, often up to 60cm (24in) long followed by a light crop of poisonous seeds. It grows quickly and looks spectacular trained over a pergola or planted as a specimen tree in a small garden.

  • Garden care: When planting incoporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and stake firmly. Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter.
