Gold Medallion Tree (Cassia leptophylla)
I'm thinking of trees to plant that will be about 15 to 20 feet tall, evergreen, tolerate full sun, sandy soil, dry conditions, hot summers, and not be too wide (about 15 to 20 feet wide would be great). They have to complement my orange tree and my mulberry tree as far as canopy shape and leaf color. They have to have dense enough foliage to provide privacy from the two story house across the alley overlooking our backyard. Having to eliminate California native trees from my list because they don't fit the characteristics I listed above, breaks my heart.
But I have seen that Gold Medallion Tree seems to fit most of my needs. Its yellow blossoms will even complement my yellow bungalow.
Does anyone have any opinions pro or con about Gold Medallion as a tree for my backyard?
Any does anyone recommend a good nursery for trees in the San Fernando Valley?
