Laburnum x watereri 'Vossii' (Golden Chain Tree) - 175 cm
5 left in stock
A spectabular sight in late spring, Laburnum x watereri 'Vossii' (Golden Chain Tree) is a deciduous large shrub or small tree of breathtaking beauty when in full bloom. Reminiscent of golden chains, it produces an abundance of drooping clusters, up to 24 in. long (60 cm), of fragrant pea-like yellow flowers. The flowers are followed by attractive, bean-like pods, which ripen in the fall. The leaves, consisting of 3 leaflets, are glossy, deep green. This hybrid results from a cross between L. alpinum and L. anagyroides. It is by far the best variety of Laburnum because its racemes are the longest and they bear dense crops of flowers. Moreover, the poisonous seeds are not as abundant as on other varieties, and gardeners often remove them to ensure good flowering the following year.
