Koelreuteria paniculata var apiculata

The golden haze at the eastern end of the Chronological Bed is the Koelreuteria paniculata var. apiculata in flower, also known as Golden Rain Tree or Pride of India. A pleasing sphere of ferny green bipinnate foliage, the yellow halo arises from the enormously long and airy, branched panicles of lemon-yellow, irregular star-shaped flowers.
These are followed in autumn by inflated 3-seamed papery bladder seedpods holding 2 or 3 nuts within that turn pink and orange before dessicating to vellum.
