This attractive deciduous flowering tree makes a wonderful specimen plant that enhances any landscape. Flowers bloom early July and continue through until frost. This plant grows and flowers best with rich, moist soil in full sun, but will tolerate less hospitable conditions just as well. Makes a beautiful living privacy screen and is a great candidate as a street tree. Can tolerate some drought and adapts to most soil conditions. Mature specimens grow up to 10 ft. in height and spread. This item ships bare-root which means it is dormant with no leaves, no soil, and the roots are exposed. Winter planted bare-root trees are more economical due to ease of handling and transporting.
