Celtis occidentalis 'Prairie Sentinel' - Hackberry from Pleasant Run Nursery

Celtis occidentalis Prairie Sentinel™

Hackberry

Prairie Sentinel™ (‘JFS-KSU1’) Common Hackberry is a member of the Elm family which has excellent tolerance of all kinds of soil conditions and temperature challenges. Prairie Sentinel™ was found in Kansas by Kansas State University and introduced by J. Frank Schmidt Nursery of Oregon. It was selected for its tightly columnar habit, which makes it an excellent street tree option. The green coarse foliage is disease free, and the operative word to use about Celtis Prairie Sentinel™ is “tough”, according to Dr. Michael Dirr.
