Discovered growing in St. Louis, Missouri by Earl Cully of Heritage Nurseries, this tough beauty, tolerating extreme heat and cold has 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, peeling to reveal 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 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
