Graceful yellow catkins adorn this small understory tree April through May, delicately thin 1 to 5 leaves turn a pale golden yellow in fall and may persist into the winter, mature trees have a fine shaggy bark, papery seed clusters resemble hops & persist attractively through the fall, extremely hard dense wood, drought tolerant, turkey and grouse love the seeds, good for both Rain Gardens & Bonsai. Dont try to brew beer with the seed clusters they only look like hops!
