Description: If you're fond of hackberries because of their wildlife appeal, you'll love this one which is endemic to Texas! The underside of the leaves is covered in tomentum which gives this tree a gray cast. And in addition to providing wildlife with food and nest, it is also larval host to Adelpha fessonia butterfly.
