I didn't know this also went by the name lucky nut tree! My neighbor has one of these that hangs over onto my property. Doesn't feel very lucky! It's a menace. Drops SO MUCH TRASH everywhere! 😩 It DOES look pretty, tho. 😅

Flowers, "nuts", leaves. You name it, it drops it. It's just a super messy tree.

I wonder if age, maintenance has anything to do with it 🤔 I trim my hard back at the end of summer, collect seeds as they are ready... I have other trees/ shrubs I would consider as more of a menace! 😂🤣😂

My neighbors' tree is definitely too big to do any of that stuff. I'd say it's about 15 ft tall and at least as wide? It's a big old beast. A few years ago I got up on a ladder and cleared out all the dead branches over my side of the wall. It freshened up the appearance, but didn't help with the litter. 🤷🏻‍♀️ They're fairly popular in public landscapes here bc the colors are nice and vibrant and they don't get terribly big, and the droppings get cleaned up frequently by landscape crews.

@novicegardenlover the seeds I got were labeled yellow, not sure if it was the seed or the soil here that had anything to do with the color difference 😉

Oh Theresa, clearly I just didn't pay attention. This morning I saw one on my way to work. It was growing quite happily on a small slope.
