Height: 20-40' Spread: 20-30' Habit/Form: Round to oval Growth Rate: Slow to Medium Zone: 4-7
Cultural Requirements: Prefers moist, well-drained acidic soil in full sun. Leaf scorch and premature leaf drop can be a problem during hot, dry periods.
Ornamental Characteristics: Low sweeping branches and dense foliage can create deep shade. The five to seven palmately compound leaves and the beautiful, upright yellow green flowers make this a lovely addition to many landscapes. Fall color can range from yellow to a warm pumpkin-orange.
Uses in the Landscape: Best if used in large areas such as parks and open landscapes. This tree is not recommended for streets or small residential areas because of messiness.
Plant tolerant of flooded areas for extended periods of time.
