Koelreuteria paniculata, also known as Pride of India or Golden Rain Tree, is a medium sized, deciduous tree native to Eastern Asia. It is tolerant of a lot of urban conditions and also is good on calcareous soil. Pinnate leaves with serrated individual leaflets unfurl in spring with a pinkish tinge. In July and August, yellow and orange flowers are borne on long, elegant panicles, followed by paper thin, lantern like seed pods. The seeds are edible once roasted but are not commonly eaten. The final show for Koelreuteria paniculata is in the autumn when the foliage blazes oranges and yellows.
