MACLURA

MACLURA pomifera New Early Summer2246
Osage Orange9-20m  Zone: 4
A picturesque, small tree, possessing strong form, texture, and character. Native to southeastern North America, growing in woods, fields, thickets and rich bottomlands. This species was historically planted as a field hedge, before barbed wire became available. It is a fast-growing, hardy, tolerant species with a round crown and short trunk. Bark is orange-brown, developing scaly ridges. The arching branches are covered with short thorns. Shiny, bright-green leaves. Very ornamental huge (15cm diameter) inedible fruits, resembling an orange ripen from green to yellow in fall, often weighing more than a kilogram. Osage-orange heartwood is the most decay-resistant of all North American timbers and is immune to termites.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
