A selection raised and named by friend Tom Cox of the Cox Arboretum in Canton, Ga. His original plant was obtained as a gift from the Arnold Arboretum. The unique seedling was raised from wild collected Chinese seed. ‘Featherduster’ stands out with pale green, wispy leaves that are among the longest one could expect for the species. The leaves contrast nicely against the dark bronze bark and take on unique yellow tones in autumn rather than the classic amber-copper colors of most clones. Ultimate size is unknown though a guess of 30’ for the moderately vigorous plants is likely in the ballpark.
