A vigorous, rapid growing deciduous tree tolerant of heat, drought, poor soils, cold and wind. Prune annually for the first few years to create strong branching structure. Beneficial to spray with a dormant oil every winter to kill over-wintering insects if you had any problems during the year. Best when planted in full sun, well-drained soil and watered deeply once every 7-10 days.
