Chinese Pistache

(Pistacia chinensis)
A garden-scale tree with a rounded canopy; narrow leaflets give it a lacy appearance. In fall, foliage turns luminous shades of orange and red to gold, even in mild climates.

Native to China, this drought-tolerant tree grows to 30-60 feet fall, with nearly equal spread. It tolerates a wide range of soils, including alkaline types. Reliable for street, lawn, patio, or garden.
