Quick Overview:

A small deciduous tree that typically grows with an oval rounded crown. Foliage consists of compound, even-pinnate, dark green leaves, each leaf typically having 10-12 lanceolate leaflets. Foliage is aromatic when bruised. Fall color is variable but often appears in quality shades of yellow, orange and red. Trees are dioecious (separate male and female trees), with flowers appearing in April in visible but somewhat inconspicuous green panicles. Pollinized flowers on female trees give rise to red-ripening-to-blue spherical fruits that ripen in fall. Drupes are inedible. Gray-brown bark peels to reveal salmon inner bark.

Description

Grow in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best in full sun. Tolerates heat, drought and a wide range of soils. Proper pruning in early years is necessary to create a symmetrical tree with good form.
