Deplanchea tetraphylla is a species of tropical rainforest trees, commonly known as Golden Bouquet tree, Wallaby Wireless tree or Yellow Pagoda Flower tree,[2][3] constituting part of the plant family Bignoniaceae.[5][6][7][8]

They grow naturally in New Guinea, Aru Islands, Cape York Peninsula and the Wet Tropics of Queensland, north eastern Australia.[2][3][4]

Atop the branches, mature trees have spectacular large bouquets of many yellow flowers, hence popularly planted in wet–tropical Australian horticulture.[3]
