Flowers and Fruits
Celtis julianae produces stalkless clusters of light-green five-stellate flowers in April.
The trees produce drupes.
Celtis julianae is native to Central China.
The trees prefer a sunny to half-shady situation on fresh to moist soil. The substrate should be sandy loam.
Trees, to 30 m tall, deciduous Bark gray Branchlets dark brown, densely brownish yellow pubescent, rarely glabrous Winter buds brown, 1-4 mm; scales at least inner ones brownish red hispid with appressed, parallel hairs Petiole 0.7-. 1.5 cm, robust, densely golden pubescent, adaxially with a deep and narrow furrow; leaf blade broadly ovate to narrowly ovate-elliptic, 6-13 × 3.5-8 cm, thickly papery, abaxially densely golden pubescent or rarely so only on veins, adaxially smooth or scabrous, base ± rounded and slightly oblique, margin finely toothed above middle to rarely subentire, teeth 13-23 on each side and less than 1 mm, apex shortly acuminate to caudate-acuminate; secondary veins 4-6 on each side of midvein. Flowers densely fascicled. Style branches linear, undivided. Infructescence solitary, stout, unbranched, densely brownish yellow pubescent, rarely glabrous, 1-3 cm, 1.5-2.5 × as long as subtending petiole. Drupe 1 per infructescence, golden to orange-yellow, ellipsoid to ± globose, 1.1-1.4 cm. Stone milky white, obovate to broadly obovate, compressed slightly on both sides, 7-9 mm, reticulately foveolate, base acute to slightly obtuse, 2-ribbed on apical half. Fl. Mar-Apr, fr. Sep-Oct.
Plants with glabrous twigs and infructescences have been called var. Calvescens. They do not seem to differ from the species in any other way.
