  • Type of products available: X/1/0 Maiden tree

Main asset

Tree without thorns, large leaves doubled pinnated yellow then light green, becoming bright yellow in autumn. Very good shade tree.


Solid tree, resistant to drought, to place in sunny location. Growing rather slowly, it ramifies strongly and creates with its large leaves an important shadow.

Small conical deciduous tree widening with age, deep rooted. Its large composed leaves are first yellow gold, then light green in summer, and finally again bright yellow in autumn. Its branches are spread out, giving it a broad and slender shape. The flowering is discreet, followed by large spiral pendent pods, persisting on the tree in autumn-winter.
