Sophora japonica is one of the latest flowering tree species, which is fully hardy to the UK. Originates from China (but planted widely in Japan), it develops a medium to large sized crown, up to perhaps 10m ill all directions, when adult. However, it can be kept as small as 3m tall with pruning. Delightful, pea like-white flowers in huge inflorescences appear as late as August and it flowers for a month. Hanging, juicy (but not edible), green pods will remain on the tree until mid-Winter. Its grey, flaky bark also has a good ornamental effect.
