This spectacular flowering tree is crowned with masses of golden blooms in early spring. It's one of the fastest growing trees in the world, easily growing 6 feet a year to an eventual height of 40 feet (100 feet in the tropics). With the huge 3 foot long bipinnate feathery leaves, it has the appearance of a large tree fern when young. Briefly deciduous just before flowering. Loves heat, needs good drainage, and is drought tolerant. Frost sensitive when young. For a distictive textural look, it can be pruned to size for growing in a large warm greenhouse or patio garden. This forest canopy tree is native from Southern Mexico to Brazil. USDA zones 10 - 12.
