Nanus is good for small spaces, beautiful in low hedges and borders and useful for bank stabilization. When leaves drop in fall, exfoliating brown bark is exposed, a nice accent to the winter garden. Upright stiff branches grow up and out from a low center base. Leave as coarse habit or prune immediately after flowering to shape. Easy to grow with few maintenance needs or disease problems.
Drought tolerant. Grows well in most soils and will tolerate clay, full sun to part shade. Species native Quebec to Virginia and inland. Z3. (1-3' bare-root trees)
