The genus, Juglans, contains 21 species prized for their nut production. They have large, alternate, palmately compound leaves and a coarse texture overall. Most have a true taproot which makes them difficult to transplant as larger plants. Walnut trees are generally not considered as landscape plants. However, many of us are stuck with them as trees that were left from the wild when the house was built.
