A superb tree, native to large areas of eastern North America and one of the stars of the famous Westonbirt Arboretum with its green leaves that turn a glowing golden-yellow in autumn. A fantastic specimen tree and can in a good position produce sweet, edible seed when mature. Its eventual size makes it suitable for larger gardens or woodland areas.
IMPORTANT (PLEASE READ) - As a general rule, Carya grow poorly in containers and should be planted out when young before they develop a large tap root. Therefore the few plants we have available are very small at a seedling size and absolutely not for instant gratification!
Only recommended for patient gardeners happy to plant out a young specimen and watch it develop over the years.
Please do not buy this plant if you require an instant tree!!
Supplied Size: 3L pots (young, seedling plants only)
