Description

An ornamental tree a little similar to Pterocarya fraxinifolia in appearance, but with narrow, deeply divided, fern-like leaves. These leaves are a bright green in spring and summer and take on attractive yellow tints in autumn. Like other wingnuts, Pterocarya stenoptera 'Fern Leaf' has spectacular, drooping catkins once established, in late summer.

The deeply cut leaves give this tree a more delicate, open appearance than the other wingnuts listed here.

Supplied Size: (availability subject to crop)


  • Position: Full sun or light, dappled shade.
  • Soil: Any fertile soil. Pterocarya stenoptera 'Fern Leaf' is particularly fond of damp or wet soils.
  • Hardiness: Hardy
  • Rate of Growth: Vigorous.
  • Habit: Large branching, suckering tree.
    • Height: 20 m (65 ft)
    • Spread: 15 m (50 ft)
  • Notes: If you slice down the middle of young twigs, you will find curious chambered pith, common to all Pterocarya species. Pterocarya stenoptera 'Fern Leaf' have vigorous root systems and should not be planted close to drains or house foundations.
