Description

Blooms in late spring with white and yellow flowers. Native to thickets, forests margins and hedge rows. The small fruits are delicious when fully ripe. Persimmons are lovely trees with clean, glossy leaves, dark green in summer and rich reddish purple in fall. They have beautiful bark and a well-mannered habit. Good for naturalizing along forest margins and fencerows.
