|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!
