Hop tree

Ptelea trifoliata

Native to the North American woodlands, hop tree is overdue to make its way into landscapes. This easy-to-grow large shrub or small tree thrives in partial shade and has large leaves consisting of several individual leaflets, which turn yellow in autumn. Its flowers give way to showy seeds that stay on the tree through fall and into winter. Hop tree is adaptable, growing easily in a variety of soils -- from slow-draining clay to fast-draining sandy loam. If your site has challenging soil conditions, try hop tree. A favorite of butterflies, the nectar of hop tree's blossom attracts swallowtails. The plant earned its common name because the fruits were once used as a substitute for hops to make beer.
