The tree itself is rather unusual in appearance; the 12 to 20 inch-long, coarse, deciduous leaves cluster only at the tips of the rough, blunt, sausage-like, thick, grey-green branches. Branches are upright and rather crowded on the trunk forming a vase or umbrella shape with age.They are rather soft and brittle and can break but are usually sturdy unless they are mechanically hit or disturbed. The crown loses its leaves for a short time during the winter displaying the coarse-textured, stubby branches.
Planting and care
Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball.
Place a small handful of E.B.
Stone Blood Meal in the bottom of the hole and incorporate into the soil.
Make sure the top of the original root ball is one inch above surrounding soil.
