A resilient broadleaf tree with dark green leaves and dark pink-grey bark that's smooth when young, but becomes cracked with age.
Yellowish catkin-like flowers appearing in spring are followed by bunches of green winged fruit.
Grows best as a specimen tree.
Prefers fertile, moist but well-drained soil, but can tolerate most conditions.
Value To Wildlife:
Attracts aphids and their predators, including ladybirds, hoverflies and birds. Flowers provide a food source for bees and insects and the seeds are eaten by a variety of birds and smaller mammals.
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
