Often overlooked by locals because it is a common denizen of our local woods, the foliage effect, however, is really grand — huge palmate leaves can seem almost tropical if you look at it with fresh eyes. Of course, it's not for the small garden or the faint of heart since it can become a 50' T & W tree! This is a plant that will change your entire environment all by itself! Fairly fast-growing, you'll have shade in no time under which you can plant all manner of delicate shade plants, and in winter you'll have the sunlight we so much need in the Northwest. Leave the leaves, at least some of them, or some of the time, and you'll have the humus or duff that shade plants luxuriate in. 

Minimum temperature: -10° F
