The Kentucky Coffee Tree features a tall and broad growth habit, reaching a mature height of about 60 to 75 feet, with a spread of 40 to 50 feet. Its open and airy canopy is composed of delicate, compound leaves with an attractive bluish-green color. In the fall, the foliage transitions to a stunning golden yellow, creating a captivating display of autumn colors.
One of the remarkable aspects of the Kentucky Coffee Tree is its unusual bark, which has a rugged and deeply furrowed texture. This adds visual interest and texture to the tree's overall appearance, especially during the winter months when the branches are bare.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the Kentucky Coffee Tree offers a unique feature. It produces large, brown seed pods that resemble coffee beans, giving rise to its common name. While the seeds themselves are toxic and not suitable for consumption, they add an intriguing element to the tree's ornamental value.
The Kentucky Coffee Tree is highly adaptable to various soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It is also tolerant of urban environments and pollution, making it a suitable choice for urban landscapes and street plantings. This tree is known for its durability and ability to withstand harsh conditions, ensuring its longevity and vitality.Botanical Name: Gymnocladus Dioicus
