Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant this tree in a sunny, spacious location where it can develop its most impressive habit. Plant in spring or autumn in any type of soil as long as it drains well. Use it as a specimen tree in a park or spacious landscape. In warm, wet winter the leavesmay persist on the tree.
