Yellowwood

The most distinctive feature of the yellowwood is its pendulous clusters of white, fragrant, wisteria-like flowers. The tree may not bloom every year, but the clean foliage and rounded form of this tree would make it worthwhile to plant if it never bloomed. The yellowwood has no serious disease or insect problems.
