Caesalpinia ferrea

Leopard Tree / Brazilian Ironwood

A most attractive upright, small to medium-sized tree with bright yellow trusses of  flowers throughout summer.  New foliage emerge in a striking coppery red in early spring lending fresh colour interest to the garden.   It has a medium growth rate and a flat canopy that casts light shade.  Truly a much-loved tree.
