The Crown of Gold Tree is fast growing and has a large terminal inflorescence full of wide, bright orange-yellow flowers; this is likely the reason for its surname ‘spectabilis', Latin for ‘worth seeing’. It grows to 10 meters, and sometimes when in bloom, the lower branches can droop to the ground due to the dense flower weight of the crown (avoidable with proper trimming). Can tolerate cold down to 26°F. Prefers warmer soil with decent drainage and can remain fully evergreen weather permitting. USDA Zone range is 10b to 11a.
The tested germination rate is 71%, and germination instructions are included.
