It is remarkably tolerant of hot and cold wind and is a crucial component in shelterbelts and windbreaks. Adapts well to dry conditions in the West, both in semi-desert and mountain foothill regions where soils are thin and poor. Makes a very graceful single specimen for front yards, parks or expansive estate-sized landscapes.|

|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Winterberry (Ilex); Switch Grass (Panicum); Dogwood (Cornus); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Thrives in deep, average, well-drained, sandy or gravelly loams, but highly adaptable to a wide range, except soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates occasional, moderate drought. Apply fertilizer in early spring.|
