Gledsia triacanthos ‘Shademaster’
Drought tolerant and heat and wind resistant make this tree a good choice for our dry climate. It is a fast-growing, graceful tree with thornless, spreading branches. Dark green foliage persists until late fall. Its small leaves provide light shade to protect understory plants from harsh sun but give adequate light to these plants so they can blossom and perform well.
