American Yellowwood can put on one of the most spectacular flowering displays of any tree species.  The blossoms appear in late spring, when numerous wisteria-like foot-long flower clusters droop from the branches. The mature American Yellowood tree in full bloom is a stunning sight.  In recognition of its beauty, the species was given the prestigious Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gold Award in 1994.  It is a medium-sized, deciduous tree that typically grows 30-40 feet tall with upright branching and a broad, rounded crown covered with intensely fragrant, wisteria-like flowers in large, drooping, terminal panicles (10-15 inches long) in late spring.  Profuse bloom might only occur every 2 or 3 years.  USDA zones 4-8
