Japanese Pagoda

Sophora japonica

The Japanese Pagoda has foliage similar to a Honeylocust. Yellowish-green flowers in 12- to 14- inch clusters appear in late summer lasting about a month, and its small branches remain green throughout the winter. The leaves are pinnately compound, comprised of 3 to 7 pairs of pinnae.

Although it’s available through few nurseries, this tree can easily be grown from pods collected in fall or early winter. Also known as a Scholar Tree, the Japanese Pagoda is a perfect addition to our university town. However, it can be messy due to the large numbers of flowers and seeds it deposits.
