Winter Gold Japanese pagoda tree is a novelty brought by the new millennium. It produces vibrant shades of lemon yellow new leaves, and is decorated with rich golden yellow colour or twigs and branches in winter.

The pinnate leaves are deciduous, individual leaflets are small, elliptic, and emerge yellow in spring, and turn light green in summer. Still, a part of the foliage on top of the plant remains lighter yellow-green even in summer. Flowering has not been observed yet. The other attraction is a rich golden yellow colour of smooth bark from late autumn until mid spring. In order to achieve as many glowing branches we suggest pruning the plant hard every spring in late winter after the frosts.

It adapts to any type of soil except for marshy, and withstands air pollution. When fully established it tolerates drought. Avoid transplanting in autumn. Young plants may be prone to some winter damage but plants with well-ripened wood are hardy to about -27°C (USDA zone 5b).
