Overview Care
The 'Chinese Pistache' is a versitile tree and landscaping favorite for good reason. The Pistache grows quickly in full sun to partial shade on moderately fertile, well-drained soils and will withstand heat and drought extremely well. Beautiful mid-sized, well rounded crown shape, feathery shaped leaves allow dappled sunlight though. Grows in clay, loam, or sand in a wide range of soil. Gorgeous yellow-orange fall color.

The Chinese Pistache is fairly low-maintenance and will tolerate the alkaline soils and hot summers of the desert southwest. It is also hardy to minus 20 degrees F. Plant in full sun in deep soil that has good drainage.  Allow the soil to dry on the surface between waterings to avoid soggy soil. Feed trees under 5 years old in the early spring with a nitrogen-based fertilizer.
