Persimmon trees are an oval or rounded deciduous tree that grows to reach a height of 35-60 feet with a spread of 25 – 35 feet. They are native to the eastern United States. Persimmons usually only produce male or female flowers (dioecious), but there are some trees that have flowers with both male and female parts (perfect flowers) for easy cross pollination. Female trees will need a male planted nearby in order to produce fruit. This tree integrates well into Pacific Northwest landscapes, combined with maples and conifers. They also work well at the edge of rain gardens. These trees are somewhat drought tolerant once established.
