Design Ideas Slightly larger than its immediate siblings, Zuni is the consummate small tree for city gardens. Intense watermelon-pink flower color is breathtaking during the late-summer lull in the garden. Special mildew resistance is ideal for city gardens, townhouse entries and condominium patio. Use as accent or to cover unattractive views on a small scale. Buy as a single-trunk standard specimen for semiformal containers or for tidy raised seatwall planters. To compound its impact, choose multiple trunks for a wider canopy that supports a greater number of flowers. Plant where you can enjoy its beautiful multicolored bark and sinuous branches up close.
Flower Color Purple
Foliage Color Green
Companion Plants Lilyturf (Liriope); False Heather (Cuphea); Daylily (Hemerocallis); Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis); Agapanthus (Agapanthus)
CARE
Care Thrives in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed in early spring. Thin young trees late winter to early spring; leave 3 to 7 main trunks or canopy branches. Remove suckers from the base of older trees.
