Large, fast-growing shade tree best planted where it has room to grow. Not an ideal street tree due to eventual size and surface roots, Shade tolerant when young so it can work it’s way up through a canopy of other trees. Excellent shade tree. Full palette of fall colors with colors often mixing together for a particularly striking effect.
