This photo has one question

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Chinese Pistache (Pistacia chinensis)This is a very reliable, easygoing tree with one true gift — sort of a Susan Boyle of the arboreal world. That gift is brilliant fall color: orange, red, sometimes yellow. For most of the year, Chinese pistache is so understated and well behaved (no messy fruit, broken branches, leaf drop) that no one notices it. It’s a medium-size, deciduous tree, generally with a roundish top.You can grow pistache in a variety of situations: on a lawn, as a small patio tree, in a parking strip, in a grove of three or more. A mature tree can serve as a substantial shade tree. USDA zones: 6 to 9 Water requirement: Moderate, but the tree is flexible enough to accept light to heavy watering Light requirement: Full sunMature size: 30 to 60 feet high and 30 to 40 feet wideGrowing tips: It's not fussy about soil or water, but fall color usually is more pronounced in drier conditions. Pistache is a bit slow to get started; start with a larger nursery tree if you’re in a hurry.
Bill Marken added this to Great Design Plant: Chinese Pistache
Botanical name: Pistacia chinensisCommon name: Chinese pistacheUSDA zones: 6 to 9 (find your zone)Light requirement: Full sunWater requirement: Moderate, but this tree is flexible enough to accept light to heavy watering Mature size: 30 to 60 feet tall and 30 to 40 feet wideTolerances: No major problems; resists oak root fungus
Therese Ciesinski added this to 6 Trees You'll Fall For
A great tree for the warm zones 7 (0°F) to 9 (20°F), Chinese pistachio (Pistacia chinensis) does not, alas, produce the edible pistachio nuts we all covet. That takes nothing away from this versatile tree. Pollinators visit the flowers, it has brilliant fall foliage, and it produces blue fruits in winter. Maturing at about 35 feet, it requires full sun and well-drained soil, and is drought-tolerant once established. Don't be put off by its gawky and unpromising appearance when young; this tree grows up to be a showstopper.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to 11 Trees for Brilliant Fall Color
Chinese pistache. Come fall a Chinese pistache (Pistacia chinensis) can pretty much stop you in your tracks. The foot-long leaves are lined with narrow leaflets that turn bright orange and red, even in desert climates. You'll also have plenty of time to enjoy the color, as the leaves usually hang on for some time after they change. Chinese pistache is a slow grower that's a good choice for smaller spaces in zones 6 though 9. It's fairly drought tolerant but can also handle regular watering if put in a lawn.
