Spring V. Rather rare for central Minnesota is the American Yellowwood (Cladrastis kentukea, Cladrastis lutea). Even more rare is the display of blossoms. This is the first time in ten years that the tree planted near the monastery has bloomed.
"The blossoms appear in late spring, when numerous wisteria-like foot-long flower clusters droop from the branches. The color is normally white, but can be pink. In either case, a mature tree in full bloom is a stunning sight. In recognition of its beauty, the species was given the prestigious Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gold Award in 1994.
"Unfortunately, many people have never seen the tree in bloom. The species is rare in the wild and seldom planted in yards. Also, most specimens don't flower profusely every year, but only at two to four year intervals."
