The yellow Indian Bean Tree is a fantastic specimen tree growing up to the height of 10m x 8m wide and it creates a striking canopy, with large, yellow, heart-shaped leaves. In summer it bares orchid-like flowers, followed by bean-like fruits in autumn. Sometimes leaves can scorch in the sun, but it doesn't harm the tree. It is a deciduous tree so will lose its leaves in autumn. A hardy tree that prefers a sunny spot.
