An excellent, easy to grow, shade tree in the upper South and farther north. Has fragrant, white, wisteria-like blooms in spring. Heartwood is stained yellow by a naturally occurring dye in the plant. Good fall color of yellow. Be patient, tree may not flower for six or more years, and once it reaches flowering maturity, it may not flower every year. Reported to more likely bloom every other year. Not easy to get established in the landscape. Turf grows reasonably well under canopy because of the deep root system of the yellowwood.
