An excellent yard tree with an oval to an upright vase shape and arching branches. Espresso is a male selection which means it does not produce the large brown seedpods typical of Kentucky Coffeetrees. Nice golden yellow fall color. Seedless means less cleanup and it grows well in hot conditions with good heat tolerance. Handles drought well and it is quite hardy. Excellent addition to the sunny landscape.
Best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates poorer soils and drought. Avoid heavy clays, however. Also adapts well to urban conditions.
