Searching Genus for CLADRASTIS

A genus of 5 deciduous trees native to eastern Asia and North America with pea-like flowers in panicles or racemes.

CLADRASTIS lutea (kentukea)Late Spring880
Kentucky Yellow-Wood9m  Zone: 4
This is a tree of unsurpassed beauty, native to the eastern USA. It is a medium-growing, deciduous member of the legume family with an upright, graceful spreading crown and low branches. Bark is smooth and light gray. The pinnately compound leaves open as yellowish-green, turning green in summer, and then bright-yellow in fall. Spectacular in bloom. The intensely fragrant, wisteria-like white flowers in large, drooping, terminal panicles (to 40cm long) will virtually cover a mature tree in late spring (blooming profusely in alternate years). Wood contains a yellow dye which distinctively colors the heartwood and gives rise to the common name. Roots go deep, so other plants may be grown underneath. Easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Cannot be recommended too highly!
Germination Instructions: Sandpapering of seed recommended.
