Discovered growing in St. Louis, Missouri by Earl Cully of Heritage Nurseries, a tough beauty, tolerating extreme heat and cold with great cultural adaptability and disease-resistance. 'Cully' is vigorous, sometimes multi-trunked, and will develop exciting exfoliating multi-colored rough bark early on: salmon, cinnamon-pink, champagne, and tan, revealing a creamy white inner bark! Dark green and leathery leaves are toothed and diamond-shaped, turning yellow in autumn. Fine in wet soil or in drought, well-draining soil or in clay. It aims to please. Place it where you can pore over the bark in winter. 40-70'T x 20-40'W

Minimum temperature: -30° F
