Golden Shower Tree

The Golden Shower Tree is native to the Indian subcontinent and adjacent regions of Southeast Asia. The golden shower tree is a medium-sized tree, growing to 33–66 ft tall with fast growth. The leaves are deciduous and the flowers are produced in pendulous racemes 8″ – 16″ long with many individual flowers. In full bloom, the tree looks like a waterfall or shower of golden yellow draping flowers. This is tree is actually in our yard and is amazing that it is growing this far north. Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
