Cercocarpus betuloides

Mountain mahogany. A small tree to 20’ with a wide spread, but commonly found in a shrubby form as a member of the chaparral. Leaves are dark olive-green above and pale beneath, with feathery veining and toothed edges. Old plants often become coarse and unattractive, but can be cut back to the base to resprout and regain a tighter form. Thrives in many soil types and is drought tolerant, but occasional summer irrigation will improve its appearance. The fruits bear a long, plumose, twisted, persistent style that adds to the plant’s garden appeal. Hardy to 20F. California.
