Cassia leptophylla, Gold Medallion Tree

The gold medallion tree is planted primarily as a shade tree or as a decorative specimen for the yard or street.

This tree loses its leaves for a very short period each year, but leaves are quickly replaced. Pruning the tree to one main leading stem from which major branches are attached can help increase its strength and sturdiness against strong wind events.
