The Pterocarya stenopthera is a larger, suckering tree with composite leaves turning yellow in Autumn. The flowers are grouped in showy catkins in early Spring, they are green and appear in profusion as the leaves emerge. By July the female catkins have developed into long hanging tassels of winged fruits which are green at first and very prominent on the tree, turning brown as they ripen. The Chinese Wingnut is easy to grow but prepare to have suckers which may need to be cut off if you don't want a multi-stemmed colony, so a larger garden preferred.
