Celtis occidentalis

2-3 ft. plants

Often overlooked but beautiful and incredibly tough. A native tree that grows to heights of 50’ with a unique display of gorgeous bark and showy purple berries in the Fall. The berries are edible for humans (flavor tends to vary plant-to-plant) and are also a bonanza to wildlife. With a natural range stretching from Canada to Florida, east of the continental divide, these very hardy trees will flourish in a wide range of soils and climates. Plant 12-15 ft. apart for a windbreak or hedge effect, or 18-20 ft. to allow them to reach their full size at maturity.
