Maacki (Amur)

Maacki amurense

This is a handsome, yet little known and used tree. The foliage emerges a unique blue-green, maturing to a rich dark green. The spike-like clusters of white flowers bloom midsummer when few other trees are blooming. Even the scaly bark is quite handsome. Fall color is yellow-green. It is a tough tree that takes compacted and dry soils in a stride. Infertile soils? No problem...this tree fixes atmospheric nitrogen. Matures at about 25-40' high and 20-30' wide.

Amur Maacki can be used as a small shade tree, a patio tree or other specimen use. I would suggest avoiding placing it in groupings. It is an ornamental tree in its own right when used alone but to attempt to blend it with other trees of the same size will result in the tree being lost in the crowd.
