This large, American native is spectacular in spring, with creamy white flower panicles that are 8-14″ long and loaded with fragrant pea-like flowers. Following the flowers, 4″ light brown seed pods form in autumn. As the tree matures, the bark turns gray, similar to a beech. Yellowwood is named after the yellow color of the heartwood. A beautiful specimen tree that grows especially well in high pH soils, is also tolerant of acid soils.
Summer – bright green
Fall – yellow
