Here is another new addition to our tree selection this year at Rutgers Nursery. It is also one of the trees we grow ourselves!
Amur Maackia is an attractive and rare small tree with so much to offer – showy spikes of fragrant, creamy white pea-like flowers rise above the foliage in mid-summer when few trees bloom, tidy forest green foliage which emerges a fuzzy silver in spring, and glowing golden bark that exfoliates with age. This is a very clean tree and excellent for small yards. Amur Maackia will grow to be about 25 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 30 feet. It prefers full sun and moist,well-drained soil.
