Plant Species of the genus Phellodendron

Information about this genus
Name: Phellodendron
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Most species in this genus need a climate with distinct seasons, and a cool winter is important to ensure proper dormancy. On the other hand, they also handle with ease hot summers and harsh sun, though the foliage is easily damaged by strong winds. They seem to thrive in any well-drained soil with a position in full sun. Plants may be propagated from seed, cuttings, by layering or grafting.
Description: This is a genus of 10 species of deciduous trees from temperate East Asia that, somewhat surprisingly, falls within the citrus family. Notable for their aromatic foliage and corky bark, they have large pinnate leaves composed of broad, often glossy leaflets. While their flowers are small and yellow-green in color, they are carried in panicles that are often large enough to be conspicuous, though not very showy, and are followed by small, black, fleshy fruits. The autumn foliage, however, is often bright yellow and can be spectacular in some years.
