Can you tell me the name of the tree that has bright yellow leaves in the early spring before they turn green in the summer. We had to leave one behind when we recently moved and would like to buy another one.



Sorry I misread the leaves for flowers

could it be robinia?
google it and have a look. Their leaves are very golden at the start.

Robinia frisia or robinia pseudocacia come to mind as possibles.

'Sunburst' Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos inermis) is another one that does this, as also do several varietes of Maples and Beeches.
