In fall, their fernlike foliage turns orange to red. Best in northern climates, they tolerate wind, cold and dry weather. Do not like summer heat. Good specimen or shade trees, though fruit can cause litter. Some are difficult to transplant. Prone to various diseases, canker, fireblight and borers, especially on plants under stress. Stressed by alkaline soils, compacted soils and air pollution.
