Phellodendron His Majesty™
His Majesty Corktree
Phellodendron sachalinense 'His Majesty'
Phellodendron amurense 'His Majesty'
Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Broadleaf deciduous tree, to 40 ft (12 m) high, similar spread, broadly vase-shaped, short trunk; medium green leaves, yellow fall color. Generally fruitless.
- Sun, wide spreading root system, does well on many soil types. Withstands drought and polluted air.
- Note: Phellodendron amurense, Amur Corktree, is considered an invasive species in some areas because fruit/seeds of female trees are distributed by birds and via stream and drainages. However, His Majesty™ is generally fruitless so is not a significant treat to native areas.
- Hardy to USDA Zone 3 Introduced by Harold Pellett of the University of Minnesota, it appears to be a hybrid of P. sachalinense and P. amurense.
