Xanthoceras

Xanthoceras sorbifolium full sun  partial shade

A hardy and versatile deciduous member of a mostly tropical family, this choice northern Chinese native headlines shiny, deep green pinnate leaves, defined by 9 to 17 serrated leaflets and lovely, white cupped flowers held in large Horse Chestnut-style clusters. A saffron-colored eye deepening to carmine-pink inscribes each sweetly scented, 5-petaled blossom. Come autumn, oval-shaped leathery capsules produce numerous, edible, large black seeds that supposedly taste like macadamia nuts.

Preferring a warm sunny locale, but also abiding a moist shady one, Yellowhorn’s upright and lacy silhouette possesses exceptional drought tolerance.

Blooms May.

Size: 12'–18' high x 8'–10' wide; hardy to zone 4.
