Product Description

Koelreuteria paniculata, commonly known as the Golden Rain Tree or Pride of India, is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree known for its striking summer display of golden-yellow flowers and ornamental seed pods. This tree belongs to the Sapindaceae family and is native to China and East Asia. The Golden Rain Tree typically reaches a height of 7-12 meters (23-40 feet) and features an open, spreading canopy. The leaves are pinnately compound and bright green, providing a pleasant backdrop to the tree's showy blossoms. In early summer, large, cascading clusters of small, bright yellow flowers appear, giving the tree its name. These blooms are followed by the development of papery, lantern-like seed pods that turn from green to pink to tan, adding further visual interest. The Golden Rain Tree is appreciated for its attractive foliage, colorful blooms, and tolerance to a range of growing conditions.

  1. Climate: Golden Rain Tree is well-suited to a variety of temperate climates. It is hardy in USDA zones 5-9.

  2. Sunlight: Plant your Koelreuteria paniculata in a location that receives full sun. It requires ample sunlight for healthy growth and prolific flowering.

  3. Soil: Provide well-draining, fertile soil. This tree is adaptable to a range of soil types, including loamy or sandy soils. It prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil with a pH range of 6.0 to 7.5.

  4. Watering: Water your tree regularly, particularly during dry spells and the growing season. Ensure that the soil remains consistently moist but not waterlogged.

  5. Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the tree to retain soil moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weeds. Keep the mulch away from the trunk.

  6. Fertilization: Golden Rain Tree benefits from an occasional application of a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring. This can provide essential nutrients for vigorous growth and flowering.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Koelreuteria paniculata as needed to shape it, remove dead or crowded branches, and maintain an open canopy. Pruning can also help control its size.

  8. Pests and Diseases: This tree is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. However, watch for issues like aphids or leaf spot, and address them if they appear.

  9. Spacing: When planting multiple Golden Rain Trees, space them at least 4-6 meters (13-20 feet) apart to allow for their mature size and to create an attractive grouping.

  10. Propagation: You can propagate Koelreuteria paniculata from seeds. Collect seeds from mature seed pods in the fall and sow them in well-draining soil or a suitable rooting medium.
