Item details

Pterocarya Stenoptera
Also known as: Chinese Wingnut

A deciduous tree in the walnut family that typically grows 50-70' tall with a rounded, broad-spreading crown. It is a fast growing tree that can reach 20' tall in the first 5 years. It is native to alpine forested areas and riverbanks in eastern and central China. It has rough bark and massive branches that make it as wide as it is tall creating a majestic form. The coarse foliage is typical of Hickories and Walnuts. Leaves are 6 to 12 inches long and composed of 11 to 25 finely-toothed leaflets. And then there are the beautiful 12 inch long seed clusters which start out a pale lime green which dance against the darker foliage.

Needs a large space and makes a great shade tree for landscapes. Best for parks or large commercial plantings. Develops an extensive root system. Freely suckers. It withstands temperatures down to -10F and is well adapted to the southern half of the US and the moderate coastal areas. USDA zones 6-8. It does well in the UK and New Zealand and is very well accommodated to Australia. Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Prefers consistently moist soils, but established trees tolerate some drought. Tolerates compacted clay soils. There are no serious pests or disease problems.

Choose from packs of 15, 50, and 100 seeds above.
