Koelreuteria paniculata is a deciduous gray-brown barked tree found in sunny places, often taken in cultivation at temples, growing to 10m in height. Leaves are of alternate phyllotaxis, each imparipinnate compound, and the leaflets consist of 3-7 pairs, in the oval shape of a 25-35cm-in-length, with margins serrated. Some segments cut themselves in entirely afresh. The stem tops erect 15-40cm long panicles with many small golden-yellow flowers.
