The trunks are visually pleasing to the eye as the fissures in the dark gray bark reveal a striking orange hue underneath. Hardiness to around 15 to 20 degrees F. Full or reflected sun, part shade. Note: allergenic pollen. Drought tolerant once established, making it very desirable with little water required; water only once per week or once per two weeks, subject to location.
