Red Push Pistache

14. Red Push Pistache

(Pistacia x ‘Red Push’)

Location: 115 Grande Avenue
Nominator: Susan and John Harada

This Red Push pistache was planted 20-years ago as an experiment. It is a hybrid between P. atlantica and P. integerrima with compound leaves that emerge with a distinctive red color, hence the name Red Push.

It has a lovely display of red, orange, and yellow color in the fall. It has proven to be drought tolerant and pest resistant. It seldom produces fruit and stays relatively small and compact. This tree is a good alternative for the Chinese Pistache, which is often over planted.
