HACKBERRY – COMMON, CELTIS OCCIDENTALIS
H – 50′, W – 45’, Z – 3a
One of the toughest of shade trees while maintaining an attractive and neat habit of growth; interesting warty bark, looks quite beautiful with age; tolerant of almost any growing conditions except standing water. Common Hackberry has green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn buttery yellow in fall. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants.
