Please can someone remind me of the name of this tree? My boss grew it from a seed a couple of years ago. It has pretty yellow flowers followed by fleshy pods which dry crispy with black seeds inside.



It's really a large shrub and believe it's called Colutea or Bladder Senna. As children we used to love to pop the pods - even if the bush was in someone's garden!

Thank you Arbuthnot. You’re right. I’ll tell my boss in the morning. I have retrieved a few pods as I am going to attempt to grow one myself.
