Celtis australis

Celtis australis – a deciduous tree that grows up to 25 m in height, forming an airy, wide treetop. The fruits are round, dark purple berries and ripen in August and September, but they are present on the tree also through winter. It is suitable for warm and sunny habitats, loose and sandy soils. It cannot grow in the shade. It tolerates dry and moist soil as well as drought. The Mediterranean climate is especially good for it. It is often planted as an ornamental plant because it is resistant to air pollution and has a long life (more than 400 years). Its treetop provides a pleasant shade in the summer.
