Firmiana simplex

(Chinese Parasol Tree)  Uncommon tree with lobed HUGE tropical looking leaves 12″ across… greenish white bark with vertical silver streaks… this tree commands attention! Small clusters of greenish white flowers followed by 4 petaled dried pods add interest. Wood is used in Chinese musical instruments. This deciduous tree in the chocolate family can grow to 40′ tall and 20′ wide, but it usually about half that…most soils, sun to part shade, regular water but drought tolerant when established. Ew-hoo!
