I got 2 Golden Rain trees from the Arbor Day Society about 8 or 10 years ago, & I have a *bunch* of seedlings.

It's still a little hot to transplant them, but I'll be happy to dig some up in early October & send them to you for postage if you still want them then.

They're very pretty trees, they have panacles of sunny yellow flowers in spring, followed by bunches of sort of translucent yellow seed pods that look a little like peppers!

just let me know.

Wow, that is really really nice of you. I would be very happy to take them. Please let me know how can I return the favor. Please let me know your email so I can communicate with you directly through email. Thanks again.


Problem with golden rain trees???

By the way, according to this forum here, these golden rain trees can attract boxselder bugs. Do you experience these at all:
