Voss Laburnum Tree
A particularly attractive tree, the Voss's Laburnum tree (Laburnum x waterii 'Vossii') is noted for its long beautiful golden-yellow flowers. Commonly seen planted close to lakes and rivers where its somewhat rambling nature is very visible. Springtime marks the arrival of furry young shoots and dark green leaves as well as the formation of pea-pod type flowers, which can reach lengths of 30cm (24in). Please note the seeds are poisonous. A good tree for a small garden as this tree can be expected to reach a height of around 4m at ten years but could go on to double that depending on local conditions. We can see why the RHS gave it their Award Of Garden Merit.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.
We have asked all our Laburnum trees to be exceptionally well behaved and to flower in the same year as delivery. Several factors will determine your Laburnum flower viewing pleasure e.g. If you order it after the flowering season, it is most unlikely it will give you a repeat performance regardless of how long and loud you shout "ENCORE!" at it. If the weather is not that great, the official Laburnum Flowering Union may call a strike and prevent all flowers from coming out. As we have demonstrated, some factors are out of our control but usually the Laburnum Tree will provide a lovely display of flowers provided the conditions are right and you are there long enough to see them.
Laburnum Vossii Tree And Pot Sizes
As a guideline, the Vossii size options are as follows:
150-180cm : 2-3 years old, 12 Litre Pot, Quarter Standard.
(RB)Girth 10-12cm : *Roughly 300-360 cm tall , rootball, Available November to March Only.
(RB)Girth 12-14cm : *Roughly 360-420 cm tall , rootball, Available November to March Only.
(RB)Girth 14-16cm : *Roughly 420-480 cm tall , rootball, Available November to March Only.
*Heights are given as a very rough guideline and can have considerable variation based on species and supplier (each nursery experiences different growing conditions) It may even have been pruned before being sent out so we can only guarantee girth. Trees over 5.5m may include a delivery surcharge based on location and species.
Rootball means that it will arrive with the roots wrapped and no pot. Laburnum Vossii heights are very approximate when it comes to trees over 3 years old and maturity is indicated by a girth measurement around the trunk. Each 2cm increment is around 12-18 months girth and a noticeable difference in canopy and rootball size.
The 1/4 and 1/2 standard reference describes roughly how much clear stem there is of the tree in relation to its overall height. So a 1/4 standard Vossii will have less clear stem than the same height 1/2 standard.
What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Voss Laburnum Tree
Dear Trees Online, I just wanted to say thanks for sending a very tall and very lovely Laburnum tree to my sister - she was absolutely delighted with it. Well done you (and thanks again)! Best wishes, Delny 0819

Thank you for my Laburnum tree its lovely and VERY healthy. Julia 0115
Dear Alan, Thank you so much for writing and for our beloved tree 'Lenny'. You took such care on his packaging I thought that the box contained a statue of Rameses II but it was even more precious. The young man at Night Freight did treat him with care, so no problem there. Lenny is well shaped and a fine example of your company and we have high hopes that he outlives us and that the next people that enjoy our back garden will share him with their friends and family.....along with the birds that will nest in the protection of his branches. Take care and we hope to be ordering again from you soon, The Parker's 0812

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
