Quick Overview:

Powhatan is a cold hardy, disease resistant, violet- purple National Arboretum introduction. Can be trained as a big shrub or as an upright tree.

Description

Best grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Does well in loamy, clay soils with good drainage. Benefits from a slow release fertilizer. Overly fertile soils tend to produce lush foliage growth at the expense of flowering with somewhat increased susceptibility to winter injury. Water roots deeply, particularly in dry spells, but avoid wetting the foliage.
