Magnificent green smoketree - is this usual?
On Wednesday we were in Toronto, parked on aside street near where we were going - and found ourselves parked next to the most magnificent green smoketree I have ever seen! Actually, I think it's the first time I've seen a green one. Most of the ones I've seen have been purple, and shrubs rather than trees. Friday we were in Toronto again and I went prepared - I got 4 cuttings off the tree! I'm doubtful that they will root though because I only had softwood rooting hormone and the shoots were already quite woody. But I can hope....
My questions are:
- Is this sort of size usual for a green smoketree? I've done some searching and can't seem to find anything of comparable size.
- Any guess on age or variety of this tree?
