Beautiful specimen tree for parks and large gardens. The common name, maidenhair tree, refers also to the leaves, which resemble those of the maidenhair fern. Plant in full sun and protect from strong winds.


Plant in a well drained and well worked soil. Take care to plant the bud union above the soil level. Water in well and keep soil moist until tree is established. Fertilize when planting and again after new growth appears. Prune tree when planting to encourage new growth.
