A young Netfleaf Hackberry passes through a rather ungainly adolescence, but with a little pruning, like a butterfly from a chrysalis, it emerges as a sculptural small shade tree that provides habitat for butterflies and songbirds as well as cooling our patios and decks on a very modest water budget. Because it has deep roots, it can be planted close to walls and paving without risk.
