Top Plants For Sonoma County
|Scientific Name||Pistacia chinensis|
|Common Name||Chinese Pistache|
|Notes/Remarks||Fall color bright orange/red.|
Valued as one of the finest small trees to plant in Sonoma County for shade, drought tolerance, and vibrant fall color despite slow growth, threat from verticillium wilt in irrigated soils, and clean-up of dropped leaflets and fruits. When a male tree is nearby, female trees develop large clusters of attractive orange-red berries in fall.
