Introducing the Phellodendron lavallei, commonly known as Lavalle Cork Tree. Native to central Japan, this deciduous tree boasts more upright branching than its similar counterpart, the P. amurense. The thick and corky bark of the Lavalle Cork Tree can even be harvested as a source of cork. Growing up to 10 meters tall and not frost tender, this tree prefers well-drained soils that vary from light (sandy), medium (loamy), and heavy (clay) and can tolerate a range of soil acidity levels from acidic to basic. It cannot grow in the shade and requires moist soil but shines in full sunlight. The Lavalle Cork Tree is in flower from June to July, producing male or female flowers that must be grown together for seed production.
