Why plant Perkins Pink Yellowwood?

Perkins Pink American Yellowwood is a graceful and refined tree that is just as at home on the grounds of grand, formal estates as it isin modest gardens with room for only a few (extra-special) trees. This medium to large ornamental/shade tree casts a dappled shade, and its roots grow deeply, making the area underneath its arching branches a wonderful opportunity for planting up with ferns, hostas, and wildflowers. (Don't forget a place to sit!) The long chains of fragrant, pale pink flowers in early summer may remind you of Wisteria. Perkins Pink Yellowwood doesn't bloom every year, but when it does, it paints an unforgettably romantic picture.

American Yellowwood is native to many eastern and central U.S. states, though it is rather rare in the wild. In locations where it grew in our nation's early days, settlers valued the hard wood for gun stocks and used the heartwood to make a yellow dye (hence the name 'Yellowwood'). The bark covering Yellowwood Trees is smooth, gray, and beech-like and invites you to touch it. A Yellowwood planted on the grounds of the Perkins Institute for the Blind in Watertown, Massachusetts is where this variety came from. Perkins Pink Yellowwood was raised from a seed of that tree and was introduced in the 1930s.

How to use Perkins Pink Yellowwood in the landscape?

Although Perkins Pink Yellowwood doesn't bloom every year, it does have another performance that is more reliable -- its fall color. In early autumn, the bright green leaflets turn bright yellow, looking especially luminescent against the slate-gray trunks.

How To Plant Perkins Pink Yellowwood

An adaptable and easygoing tree, Perkins Pink Yellowwood deserves wider use. It thrives in full sun and in any type of soil that isn't wet. Be sure to protect the thin bark from string trimmers.

How To Water

Be sure to give your Perkins Pink Yellowwood regular water while it becomes established; afterwards, it will tolerate dry spells on its own.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

One other thing you should know about Yellowwood is that it's a 'bleeder'. Like Birch and Maple, it will ooze sap if you prune it in the winter or spring, so wait until summer to make any cuts. Bleeding doesn't actually harm the tree, but it can look alarming!

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
