About Goldenrain Trees

Koelreuteria paniculata is a species of flowering plant in the family Sapindaceae, native to eastern Asia, in China and Korea. Common names include goldenrain tree, pride of India, China tree, or varnish tree. It is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree growing to 7m (23ft) tall, with a broad, dome-shaped crown. The leaves are pinnate, 1540cm (616in) long, rarely to 50cm (20in), with 7-15 leaflets 38cm long, with a deeply serrated margin; the larger leaflets at the midpoint of the leaf are sometimes themselves pinnate but the leaves are not consistently fully bipinnate as in the related Koelreuteria bipinnata.
