This medium size, showy, deciduous tree is a fast grower, bringing birds and butterflies to your yard quickly. Its large, branching crown provides great shade, usually used as along the street side. Small yellow flowers are inconspicuous but fragrant; and when blooming, bees flood the tree. Short season of lovely yellow, fall colors.
