|Valued for their moderate shade and beauty, these wide-spreading trees have airy, light green foliage. Leaves turn yellow in fall. Several species have orange-red to blue-black cherrylike fruits that birds love. Also grown as shrubs. Their deep roots make them better lawn trees than their near relative, the Elm. Plant one near a cement walkway; its roots will not lift or crack the pavement. Plant from containers or choose small bare-root trees with large root systems. Most need a winter chill. Tolerates cold, heat, dryness, wind and alkaline soils.
This shrub's branches are somewhat pendulous, and carry red-orange to brown fruit which attracts birds. Strongly veined leaves are bright green above, paler below.
