SKU: 101 Category:


An upright and narrow habit, Firespire® Musclewood performs well in either full sun or full shade. Selected by Mike Yanny for its dense branching and small scale. The smooth silvery-blue to gray bark creates winter interest. Brilliant orange-red fall color. The fruit is hop-like and attracts wildlife, and it serves as a host to many butterflies in their larval stage such as the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. This long-lived small tree grows slowly and is does well in a range of soil types, tolerating both wet and dry conditions as well as some urban pollution. Useful for small spaces in the urban landscape to frame views or screen. A Johnson’s Nursery introduction.
