Dahlbergia sissoo-Indian Rosewood

Evergreen to semi evergreen tree to 50' by 30'.  Fast growth with water but quite frost tender.  Glossy green compound foliage.  Is a nitrogen fixer so can feed itself.  Luxurious looking but needs some hardening off to survive hard frosts.  Good for erosion control as it has a wide spreading root system.
