The Q&A Archives: What Zone Do I Live In, Can The Golden Rain Tree Survive Here?

Question: Golden Rain Tree, can it survive in upstate New York?

Answer: Golden Rain (Koelreuteria) is considered hardy to zone 5, possibly into zone 4. Michael Dirr's "Manual of Woody Landscape Plants" indicates that younger plants are more susceptible to winter damage and that there may be stem injury at temperatures of -20 to -25 degrees. To some extent your microclimate may also determine your chance of success.
