Golden rain tree

Koelreuteria paniculata


An exotic planted, surprisingly, with magnolias and other native trees around the courthouse square in a small southern town. Here's another spotting that shows the tree later in the year, better pics of foliage and trunk:


Native to eastern Asia, in China and Korea. Other names include Pride of India, China tree and varnish tree. Papery pods in the fall.
