This beautiful, deciduous tree, known to have been native to the Northwest through fossil records, was thought to have been extinct world wide until a specimen was found in a Chinese temple in the 1940's. It has a graceful conical growth habit with flattened leaves that appear feathery and plume like. In late spring fresh new foliage appears a bright green turning a rich golden to rusty bronze in the fall. Height in 10 years, 12-15' but ultimate height is 100' with a 25' spread. This prehistoric plant attains best color in full sun. Beautiful tree and an excellent conversation piece.
