Golden Chain Tree - Weeping yellow blossoms measure over one foot long! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
Golden Chain trees are among the most popular garden trees in the world mainly due to their breathtaking yellow blossoms which link together to form weeping flower chains. These Golden Chain flowers are highly fragrant and are known to measure over one foot in length! These bright yellow blossom chains beautifully blend with the dark green bark of the tree to create a unique visual effect most trees lack. Another attractive feature of the Golden Chain tree is that its maximum size tends to be relatively compact in comparison to other popular garden trees. The mature height of a Golden Chain tree is between 12 and 20 feet tall, with a spread of 8 to 10 feet. Golden Chains are excellent garden trees also because their roots increase nitrogen levels in the soil! The reason for this is that the Golden Chain tree is actually a member of the pea family, and being a legume, it has the defining characteristic of fixing nitrogen in the soil, which helps boost and support neighboring plants!

What will you receive?
When you order a tree from Online Orchards, you can expect it to arrive packaged in one of two ways depending on the growing season. When the trees are dormant in November through June, the roots are dipped in a thick gelatinous hydrogel solution which really acts as a sponge of water surrounding the roots that the tree can pull moisture from as needed during its time in shipment! After being dipped, the roots are then sealed in an airtight green wrap that both holds the hydrogel in place and protects the roots. If you order a tree between the months of June and October, when the weather becomes to warm to ship bare-root trees any longer, you can expect to receive them growing in a tall pot filled with shavings, sawdust, or soil, depending on what's best for your specific variety of tree!
