Comments: One of best natives that is resistant to insects, diseases, and deer brousing. They can not stand drought, particulary when growing in hot sunny areas. Trees are generally mostly evergreen. Flowers a good source of nectar for bees. Excellent autumn color in the northern ranges where it tends to be more deciduous. New plants are produced from suckers. Mature specimens have very attractive, smooth, orange to terra-cotta-colored trunks. A great large shrub to small tree form for naturalistic sites. Where conditions are favorable this native can form thickets of titi.
