Koelreuteria paniculata-Golden Rain Tree
Sapindaceae Family

Asian native growing to 35' by 40' in diameter.  Open branched it provides light shade.  Fall color is yellow to golden but not always dependable.  Flowers occur from early to mid summer and are very showy.  It will do best with some protection from reflected heat if present.  It will perform reasonably well in the low desert but is rare in Phoenix.  The fruit capsules also are attractive as they dry from red to eventual brown.
