Prized for its unique, spreading growth habit, Kentucky Coffee Tree is as tough as it is lovely. Bark is deeply furrowed and scaly, adding year-round interest to the landscape. Large, doubly-compound leaves have a tropical look and are usually blue-green in color with yellow fall color. Finely textured leaves create dappled shade.
