Keith Davey Chinese Pistache
Perfect Shade Tree Keith Davey Chinese Pistache
- Beautiful Vivid Fall Color
- Stately Uniform Growth
- Well Behaved Roots
- Widely Adapted
One of the most beautiful shade trees available today is the Keith Davey Chinese Pistache (Pistacia chinensis 'Keith Davey'). Since the day it was introduced, it's quickly become one of the most sought after ornamental shade trees for USDA Growing Zones 6 through 9.
Keith Davey Pistache has a light and airy appearance in the landscape. It features a wonderful rounded canopy with very uniform branching habit.
You'll appreciate the spectacular, bright green foliage as it gives you shade all through the growing season. Once fall comes around, those compound leaves put on a brilliant autumn color display of fiery orange crimson and deep scarlet red, which increase in intensity as the fall progresses.
In the home garden, the Keith Davey Pistache acts like a perfect shade tree. Along with all of the ornamental qualities, it also has a non-aggressive root system. This tree can be planted near walkways, driveways and patios without any problem.
And because Keith Davey is a non-fruiting male cloned selection, modern homeowners won't have any messy berries or seeds to fuss with.
The Keith Davey is tolerant of urban pollutants and drought tolerant once established. It is adapted to a wide range of soil conditions.
It also works well in a lawn and can handle competition from grass. This tree is recommended on many firescaping lists and does well on the Coast.
Even fall clean-up is easy, because the long, narrow leaves are easy to collect. For composters, the leaves break down quite quickly and are a great benefit to the compost pile.
The tree makes a wonderful accent plant as a background tree to provide a break from the hot afternoon sun or to take the heat off of a kitchen window or pool room.
The uniform growth and perfectly straight trunk make quite a statement when used to line a driveway or to highlight a property line.
Virtually disease and pest free with little if any pruning necessary, the tree develops almost on its own. Plant the Keith Davey to get your perfect landscape addition established and then sit back and watch the show.
