As a comment about Yellowwood (Cladrastis kentukea), SongofJoy wrote:

Yellowwood is a very attractive medium to large tree for a prime spot in the landscape. It gets 30-45 feet tall and wide, has smooth gray bark, and has beautiful fragrant clusters of creamy white, wisteria-like flowers in the spring. Flowering can be so abundant that the fallen flowers look like snow on the ground. Yellowwood likes alkaline soil that is well drained and of average fertility. It wants full sun. This tree in flower is absolutely breathtaking.

I have three of these trees and they seem to fully bloom every other year. This year there were some blooms but last year there were lots of blooms. Confused

There can be many variations of growth habits.
