Native to eastern Asia, China and Korea, Koelreuteria paniculata 'Fastigiata' is a cultivar with a particularly narrow, columnar habit and handsome pinnate (feather-like) foliage. The leaves are pale green and turn a beautiful golden-yellow in a good, crisp autumn before falling.

Panicles of attractive yellow flowers appear in midsummer on even quite young specimens and in a hot year, these flowers are followed by pinkish-red, bladder-like fruit.

A lovely, narrow tree for a warm, sunny garden but it can be slow to establish and so this is not a tree for instant gratification!
