Product Description

Month-to-Month Visuals, Made for California

With glossy green leaves that contrast against red-orange fall berries, the Chinese Hackberry is a one-of-a-kind pick for visual interest from month to month. It’s a deciduous variety, but it’s especially unique for its eye-catching looks from spring to fall, and its ability to thrive in California landscapes, full sun or shade.

And the Chinese Hackberry is drought tolerant. That means dry, arid Golden State conditions pose no problem for the Chinese Hackberry, which continues to impress in your landscape, from front yards to borders. Plus, the eye-catching fruit of the Chinese Hackberry is ideal for ornamental gardens because it attracts graceful wildlife. All the while, its ample, rounded canopy imparts rich shade that’s long-lived.

But the top benefit of our Chinese Hackberry is that it’s hand-selected by our plant specialists and expert horticulturists. Now, you get the promise of a proven performer and effortless success year over year. You’ll reap the rewards of effortless, elegant growth in your California landscape, through climate struggles, tough conditions and beyond.

Don’t wait – if you’re looking for gorgeous California growth and shade in your Golden State garden, the Chinese Hackberry is a must – get your own today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and full sun to full shade – any sunlight, from about 3 hours to 7 hours’ worth per day, will suffice.

When you’re ready to plant your Chinese Hackberry, dig a hole that’s approximately two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Your Chinese Hackberry is drought tolerant once established; however, it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water your Hackberry about once weekly or check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer to your Chinese Hackberry in early spring, before new growth begins.

4. Pruning: Prune your Chinese Hackberry in the spring – this helps maintain a neat, tidy shape.
