Positive coriaceous On Feb 25, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A slow grower, but eventually this species makes a beautiful large shade tree.

There are several majestic specimens at the Arnold Arboretum, Boston, MA (Z6a) where they have grown 60-70' tall. With their thick muscular trunks and smooth gray bark, in winter they could almost be mistaken for beeches.

Unusual among hackberries, they appear to be immune to the nipple gall and witches' broom that afflict other Celtis species growing right next to them.

Dirr gives hardiness range as Z5-7.
