Xanthoceras sorbifolium

Xanthoceras sorbifolium

Common name yellow horn
Family sapindaceae
Life cycle shrub
Flowers yellow/white

Grew these from seed quite a number of years ago. We donated one seedling to a family member's garden shortly thereafter, and it has proceeded to take off like a rocket. Funny then, that the sole remaining specimen in our garden still tops out at six inches. Must be because it's planted on our back yard island's hillside, in droughty conditions and so-so soil, surrounded by a rowdy crew of wild-growing neighbors. I'm surprised every year to see it returned. But kind of glad, you know?

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
