Native to areas of North America, hackberry is one of the toughest and most adaptable trees around. It grows fast and tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, though it prefers moist, well-drained soil. It's a good choice for beginning gardeners.
Hackberry bears bright green leaves that turn yellowish in autumn. Though not known for its fall color, it does produce sweet, edible fruit that may attract birds or other wildlife.
