Golden Rain Tree?

Notes:

Is this the blooms of a Golden Rain Tree? It was given to me a while back and the owner didn’t know the name of it and I’m not quite sure. If it isn’t a Golden Rain Tree, what is it?

Thanks, Norma

    It appears to be a Golden Rain Tree, but without seeing the leaves, I can’t tell for sure.

    Norma,

    It’s a bit difficult to tell exactly what plant this is from a single photo. However, there is a post with lots of photos of the Goldenrain tree (including photos of leaves, flowers, and fruits) here: http://identifythatplant.com/mystery-plant-016/ Perhaps that can help you.

    It sure looks like my Golden Rain tree blooms. Be wary, it is very prolific and considered to be pretty invasive. I keep mine cut back (a lotta work, and I’m still not sure the flowers are worth it). i do this so I can control the seeding and help protect our native flora.

    Thanks, Angelyn.

    After looking at all the photos, especially the seed pods. I’m convinced it is definitely a Golden Rain Tree.

    Thanks again for your help.
