Chinese Pistache – Ornamental Plant of the Week for December 9, 2013

[Image: Chinese pistache]

The Chinese pistache (Pistachio chinensis) is a medium-sized ornamental shade tree known for spectacular orange, red and crimson fall foliage colors.

The tree will reach 30 to 35 feet tall and 25 feet wide at maturity. Young plants take a while to develop a nice branch structure.

Chinese pistache has few if any disease and insect problems. It’s a great underused tree with outstanding landscape potential.

Now through February is a great time to add new shade trees in Louisiana.
