Month-to-Month Visual Interest in California

Why Chinese Hackberries?
Glossy green leaves contrast against red-orange fall berries, making the Chinese Hackberry a one-of-a-kind pick for visuals from month to month. And although it’s a deciduous variety, it’s especially unique for its eye-catching looks from spring to fall, and its ability to thrive in California landscapes…in full sun or shade.

Plus, it’s drought tolerant. That means the dry conditions of the Golden State pose no problem for the Chinese Hackberry, which continues to impress in your landscape, from front yards to borders and beyond. The fruit of the Chinese is ideal for ornamental gardens because it attracts graceful wildlife, while its ample, rounded canopy imparts rich shade that’s long-lived.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: First, select a location with well-drained soil and full sun to full shade – any sunlight, from about 3 hours to 7 hours’ worth, will suffice.

When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s approximately two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the Hackberry in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Your Chinese Hackberry is drought tolerant once established, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry about 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your Chinese Hackberry.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer to your Hackberry in early spring.

4. Pruning: Prune your Chinese Hackberry in the spring to maintain a neat, tidy shape.
