( Pride of India )
|A rounded, deciduous tree reaching 30-40' tall, with a similar spread, fast growing. The rich green summer foliage changes to yellow-green in fall. Fragrant, star-shaped flowers, 3/4" diameter, are borne in large, loose panicles (up to 16" long) in late spring. They are somewhat hidden by the foliage. The fruit is a attractive yellow drupe, appears in fall and persists through to spring.
Very adaptable, often grown along the highway, and not troubled by pests. A bit of a nuisance tree, which has escaped and naturalized in many areas. Native to northern India, western China. In cultivation since the 1500's.
Important Info : Poisonous, bead-like berries.
