Report a problem
An extremely well-mannered, small tree, often multi-trunked, growing slowly to 35 ft or so with a broad, graceful form, somewhat flat-topped with age. Narrowly oval adult leaves of 2-3" -- deep, matte green with purple and blue overtones -- follow the rounded juvenile foliage. The bark is colorful as well, brown peeling to pink and green patches. These tolerate drought and somewhat poor drainage, though well-drained soil is best in full to part sun. Frost hardy to 5 F, mid USDA zone 7. Can resprout from the base.
