Fast-growing deciduous tree to 40-50’ tall x 30’ wide. This vigorous-growing variety forms a large upright-growing, rounded canopy of serrated, lance-shaped medium-green leaves that turn bright-golden-yellow in the cool of fall. Adding further appeal is the attractive rough textured bark that develops with maturity. Cold, heat and smog tolerant, this variety is well-suited as a yard, lawn or street tree, and is great for providing quick-growing shade. Prefers moderate watering in a well-drained soil, and thrives in a full sun exposure. Oak root resistant.

USDA Zone: 6A-10B
Sunset Zone: 3-24
