Yellowwood Tree: Cladrastis Lutea - 18 inch Pot - 6-7 Foot Tall
A medium-sized, deciduous tree with yellowish-white flowers in the spring and bright yellow fall foliage.
Caring for Cladrastis lutea, commonly known as the Yellowwood tree, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This deciduous tree thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Plant it in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Water the tree deeply and infrequently, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Yellowwood is relatively drought-tolerant once established. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or crossing branches and promote better air circulation. Yellowwood is generally resistant to pests and diseases but monitor for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your Cladrastis lutea will reward you with its beautiful clusters of fragrant, white flowers in the spring and its attractive, yellow fall foliage, adding charm and elegance to your landscape.
