Nanjing Beauty is a hybrid cross that is being planted by the millions in Southern China ---Equal to our climatic zones 7, 8, 9, and 10. Possibly zone 6.

The Botany Shop was given small plants in 2004 by Dr. David Creech, Steven F. Austin University - Nacogdoches Texas . He believes, as I do, that it could be an excellent tree for fast screening, landscapes, soil conservation, timber, acid & high Ph and salty soils, and to control beach erosion. BUY ONE HERE
