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.

Amazing Colour

One of the most attractive things about this tree is the amazing of display of colour that it puts on in the summer. Chains of bright, golden yellow flowers hang from the branches and can reach up to 60cm in length! The golden racemens contrast beautifully against the deep-green, oval shaped foliage and cover the tree. This tree is a showstopper and would look brilliant placed in a garden that is lacking in colour.

Size and Shape

This laburnum tree is a vigorous grower and will reach up to 6 metres in height fairly quickly. It has a broad, vase shaped crown and a strong spreading habit. It would look brilliant grown as a specimen tree in a smaller garden. As this tree has a strong spreading habit it can also be used to make a laburnum walk which is an arch of laburnums that have been trained up over a trellis structure.

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.
