This deciduous tree has attractive, dark green, divided leaves, usually with nine to 11 oval leaflets and a smooth, pale brown bark. It likes a sunny position in fertile, well-drained soil. It is often found growing on hillsides, and is quite easy to identify in the wild in winter because it is the only native tree to have black buds. In autumn the leaves turn a rich yellow before dropping. Try growing the cultivar 'Jaspidea'. Its leaves are yellow in spring turning golden in autumn.
