Even the straight species of Koelreuteria paniculata is unique: it's the only hardy summer-flowering tree whose blossoms are butter yellow, not white. Below-left is its Coral Sun cultivar, which does everything but flower. Given the spectacular show the flowers of the species make, it's incredible indeed to suggest that with Coral Sun, you won't miss them.
Coral Sun provides eye-popping and complex displays each season of the year, involving separate shows of the leaf blades and their petioles, as well as the bark of its young stems. Compared to such dextrous versatility, mere flowers would be so obvious. Here, then, the first of many looks at this remarkable tree.
