The goldenraintree is a native of East Asia, but it grows well even in New England. This tree is best known for its brilliant yellow flower display each summer. It does not grow to be a large tree, only reaching about 30 feet at maturity. It is used next to buildings around the edge of the Yard as a great feature tree.
These two goldenraintrees are along the southwest corner of the Yard, in full view of Harvard Square.
These trees are along Memorial drive. They typically bloom around mid-July.
