Indian Rosewood Tree

Dalbergia sissoo
SKU ds728957 Categories ,


Also known as Sissoo Tree this evergreen to semi-evergreen tree has glossy green compound leaves resembling an Aspen. Rosewood is a very fast growing, soft-wooded tree, especially if provided ample irrigation. Prized for its large shade canopy, it has proven quite drought tolerant in desert climates. The large root system is useful for erosion control, but do not plant it near walls or foundations. Probably best for larger yards. Under-planted in Southern Nevada, although the city of Las Vegas has been planting them downtown with great success.
