5 - 9
Not much has been written or mentioned about this interesting species. It is an attractive small tree with slender branches and an open crown under ideal conditions it reaches a mature height of 30'High, but normally matures to 15'High x 10'Wide. Contrary to its name it has no thorns. This tree has very handsome glossy foliage that is tardily deciduous. It is covered with beautiful red fruit in the summer that transitions to a shiny black in the fall. The berries are eaten by many song birds.
We expect to have more of this species Spring 2016.
