Comments: Will grow in wet or dry soils. Has nice color of flower and seed in spring and of foliage in fall. Relatively short lived. Only female plants have fruit. One of more reliable trees for autumn color in deep south. Unfortunately, this tree is highly unpredictable and requires better conditions than most people realize even though it is a native that can be seen growing nearly everywhere in the coastal South where soils are often dry and soils are often poorly drained.
