CELTIS occidentalis

Hackberry –

Celtis occidentalis “Common hackberry is a deciduous shade tree native to the eastern United States nad extreme southern Canada. The foliage is reminiscent of the American elm but often suffers from small warty galls. It has purple, pea-sized fruit in the fall and readily self seeds and can become invasive. Fall foliage color is a clear yellow. Mature trees have distinctive, coarse ridged bark. It is susceptible to witches-broom.

Common hackberry is a tough plant, tolerant of windy and/or cold winter locations. Plant it in full sun in a wide array of soils. It is a larger shade tree perfect for urban sites as well as unirrigated, open parks and fields. A far more aesthetically “”clean”” selection of the hackberry would be cultivar ‘Prairie Pride’.”
