American yellowwood is a medium-sized, deciduous tree of the legume family that typically grows 30-50’ tall with upright branching and a broad, rounded crown. Intensely fragrant, wisteria-like, pink flowers in large, drooping panicles (10-15” long) will cover a mature tree in late spring. Profuse bloom may occur only once every 2 or 3 years however. New trees may not bloom for the first 8-10 years. The species is native to the southeastern U.S.
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Tolerates some dry soils once established. Prune in summer because cuts made in late winter or spring tend to bleed.
Pinnately compound green leaves turn yellow in fall.
Fragrant, drooping clusters of pink-white flowers in late Spring.
