Hi, I am trying to figure out whether a golden chain tree will do well in my location in Orinda California. I would be putting it an an area of my yard that gets full sun a little over half of the day. Thanks in advance!

Goldenchain tree (Laburnum) can take some afternoon shade in the hottest climates of central California, but best bloom comes from full sunshine in your gardening region. Your decision to plant a goldenchain should be based on whether the site gets morning or afternoon shade. My goldenchain tree gets morning shade and afternoon sun - it doesn't bloom well at all. Hope this information is helpful!
