Laburnum anagyroides 'Yellow Rocket' ®
Description: A fantastic form of the popular spring flowering Laburnum. It is a columnar growing tree with a very narrow upright habit so perfect for any size of garden. The bright sunny yellow pendant flowers adorn the tree in May creating a beautiful sunny effect and perfect for attracting bees and butterflies to the garden. The deciduous foliage is green and pinnate, creating a pleasing backdrop for the yellow flowers. Use it to add vertical interest to the garden - or train the stems onto a pergola or archway to create an eye-catching covered walkway.
History: Introduced by Frank P Matthews and crowned Best in Show at the New Plant Awards of the HTA National Plant Show 2018.
Laburnum Growing Tips: Pruning is not needed in case of this slow growing variety, but if you wish to maintain a size or shape you can prune unwanted branches in the middle of winter or early in the spring. Easy to grow in any well-drained soil in a full sun position.
