Maacki (Amur)

Maacki amurense

This is a handsome tree, though little known and used. The foliage emerges a unique blue-green color and matures 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. A tough tree, Amur Maaki takes compacted and dry soils in stride. Infertile soils are not a problem, as 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 for other specimen use. I would avoid placing it in groupings. Although an ornamental tree when used alone, blending it with other trees of the same size will result in its being lost in the crowd.
