American Yellowwood

Yellowood is a large wide spreading deciduous tree with compound leaves and pendulous terminal panicles of white flowers which are fragrant and typical for pea family.  It has gray smooth bark and good yellow fall foliage color and is a splendid ornamental tree that will grow on many rich, well-drained, soils but is found naturally on higher pH and limestone areas. Native to widely scattered localities in the southern U.S. but a popular ornamental in colder regions.
