Laburnum x watereri 'Vossii' (Golden Rain) - 9L Pot
An unforgettable sight to behold if trained over a pergola, the Laburnum x Watereri 'Vossi' (or Golden Rain) is a broad-crowned deciduous tree that takes a shallow rooting habit. Its gorgeous long yellow racemens glimmer in the sunlight, perfectly contrasting its deep green oval ternate leaves. This beautiful, hardy tree has a spreading crown and is highly scented.
The Golden Rain tree is a perfect addition to any garden, if trained over a pergola or planted as a specimen tree. Although this tree is known to be toxic to humans, the effect is more than likely to be a tummy upset if consumed.

We have developed an eco friendly polypot that is currently in use across our 9 litre range. This polypot has less than 20% of the plastic used by a regular pot, and is importantly recyclable. Polypots also prevent root spiraling, encouraging a healthier root system.
All trees arrive in an extra thick cardboard box with a clamp to hold their pot in place. This prevents them from moving around on their journey.
Nursery staff will wrap the roots of our bare root trees and use compost to keep them moist during transportation. This extra protection prevents them from drying out, allowing for a flying start. We also use the same specialised box that our potted trees have to keep them nice and secure as they make their way to your home.
Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot
Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
