Tolerant of environmental extremes, this 35-60' spiny tree can make an impenetrable hedge, in fact before barbed wire came about in the 1870's this was much used as fencing. The pretty, dark-green leaves of this southcentral U.S. native turn bright-yellow in fall. This shrub/tree is native to river valleys, but they will also tolerate drought and clay. The female trees (if a male is present) produce large, curiously-lobed yellow-orange fruit (not edible), the fruit is said to keep bugs out of the house and the timber of this tree makes rot-resistant, long lasting fence posts. Ours are seed grown unsexed seedlings. S/M-D
