A moderately fast growing semi-deciduous tree with fissured bark and a flat crown that is usually wider than the tree’s height, which is typically seen as 30 to 40 feet tall. The 10-inch-long compound pinnate leaves are divided into many rounded lime colored opposite leaflet. Golden yellow flowers are abundant in late spring to early summer and will carpet the ground beneath the tree when they drop. The fruit that follows is an interesting single seeded winged samara that looks like the unrelated fruit of a maple tree. Plant in full sun and give an occasional deep watering – fairly drought tolerant once established but best not to over irrigate as this produces weaker wood. It is heat tolerant.
