Comments: Bark turns white as the tree matures. Usually has 3 - 4 distinct trunks. (Our Experts Comments: The catalog picture can be mis-leading. The majority of wholesale nurseries will plant 3 - 5 seedlings in the same hole and grow on as a clump. A single stem can produce additional trunks after 'established' and cut to the ground). Can give landscapes a woodsy look, even in the city. Leaves turn a golden color in the Fall. Tree is drought and wet soil tolerant, but is prone to ice damage.
