Info

Its narrow leaves have a remarkable, deeply impressed, 3-D character - worth growing for this one feature alone. Not bothered by disease, it grows rapidly to form a round-shaped crown 25-30 ft. tall. During summer and autumn, the long seed-bearing "hops" make the tree appear decorated. Performs best in the South if it is partially shaded.
