Laburnum vossii Golden Rain has longer flowers than the wild variety. Suitable for a small garden and any well drained soil.
Laburnum vossii trees can reach a height of about 9 metres.
Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver.
How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
Laburnum vossii carries much longer racemes than the everyday Laburnum but has the same lovely bark. Because of its parentage the strings of yellow flowers are generally sterile. All parts of the Laburnum are poisonous. Because this variety is sterile and does not make fruit, it is safer for livestock or children.
There are a couple of photos of the Laburnum arch at Bodnant Gardens here.
