Comments: This cultivar has golden yellow spring foliage which stands out when displayed against older leaves on the same plant or adjacent plants. In autumn the leaves turn a rich yellow. Fragrant flowers not showy and fruit can be messy under the tree. Honeylocusts are reported to grow in zones 8 and 9, but they are less satisfactory in these zones than they are in more northern zones.
