Spectacular in bloom, this gorgeous tree native to Oregon and Northern California features bark which is thin and smooth on young trunks, becoming thicker and platy on older specimens. The open crown of this 50' (up to 150' in the wild) tree is conical in shape with dense leathery evergreen leaves are dark green on the top sides and beautifully golden underneath. White flowers in spring become showy, spiny burs containing one to three edible (and unbelievably delicious!) nuts. A wild and wonderful addition to the landscape and the only known host to the Golden Streak Butterfly; long lived too, up to 500 years! S/M-GDr
