It is a perennial small tree or shrub reaching about 30-40 ft (9-12 m) tall. The bright yellow flowers bloom from summer to early fall, occuring in clusters. The stamens of the flowers are a very principal feature of the plant, and are useful in helping distiguish the Golden Penda from other members of its genus. Its leaves are evergreen, glossy-green, lanceolate, reaching about 150 mm long.[2][3][4]
