The Kentucky Coffeetree (Gymnocladus Dioicus) grows at a slow to medium rate, with height increases of anywhere from less than 12″ to 24″ per year. Matures to a height of 60-75′ with a spread of 40-50′. Produces pyramidal clusters of greenish-white flowers that bloom at the same time leaves are maturing (late May to early June). The flowers of the female trees have a rose-like fragrance. Features bipinnately compound leaves that can reach up 36″ in length and 24″ in width. Individual leaflets are only about 2″ long. The Kentucky Coffeetree is a good landscape tree for large lawns and parks. Grows best in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates poorer soils and drought. Avoid heavy clays, however. Also adapts well to urban conditions.
Full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.
