A good shade tree with a spreading habit that's prettier in the landscape than black walnut. Susceptible to Walnut Bunch Disease in the deep south. We have grown Heartnuts for 15 years and have not noticed the disease. For the areas of Zone 8 the disease could be more of a problem. Self fruitful 20' to 35' recommended spacing. Zones 5-8.

Butternut - Juglans Cinerea
Butternut, also called white walnut or oilnut, grows rapidly on well-drained soils of hillsides and streambanks in mixed hardwood forests. This small to medium-sized tree lives about 75 years. Butternut is more valued for its nuts. The sweet nuts are prized as a food by man and animals.Climatic conditions within the botanical range of butternut vary widely. From Alabama to New Brunswick, with highs as much as 105 degrees F to lows of -30 degrees F. Annual precipitation ranges from 25 inches in southeastern Minnesota to 80 inches in the southern Appalachians. The frost-free period is 210 days in the southern part of the range and 105 days in the northern part. Butternut is generally considered to be more winter-hardy than black walnut. At least two Butternuts should be planted to insure pollination. Roots do produce juglones like black walnut, so some plants will not grow inside its drip line.Susceptible to butternut dieback or butternut canker (Sirococcus clavigignenti-juglandacearum), which is a usually fatal fungal disease. Zones 3-7 Space 20-30'.
