Native to parts of Eastern Asia, Phellodendron amurense is unusual in the UK and has pinnate (feather-like) pale green leaves which turn shades of yellow and bronze before falling in autumn. The leaves are aromatic. Established trees develop a rounded crown and bark a little similar to that of a Quercus suber (Cork oak). 

Phellodendron amurense is best suited to a position in full sun or light dappled shade with some shelter from cold winter winds.
