Leaf Bloom Time
Spring: April-May

Leaf Drop Time
Fall: September-November

Single to 3-lobed leaves grow on this tree that is rare to Canada. When crushed or broken the leaves, twigs and branches give off a spicy fragrance. With 3 prominent veins, these green leaves often curl inward to reveal their slighty hairy underside and turn shades of yellow to red in Fall.


Hanging in cluster, green/yellow pollen flowers appear before the leaves in Spring. Small dark blue berry-like fruits sit in a red cupped-stalk in several clusters.


Full sun for most of the day is ideal. Moist, sandy and well-drained soil is best for growth.
