The North American species Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal, which originates in the United States, has a strong landscaping and commercial potential, due to the tree's ornamental value, the look of the leaves and flowers, the shape of the crown and the quality of the fruit. With a view toward introducing Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal into the Baia Mare landscape, its behavior in the Baia Mare Depression is tested. Currently, in Romania, Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal has been analyzed neither from the point of view of ornamental value nor of its behavior in Romania's climate. Following observations, recommendations are made for using Asimina triloba (L.) Dunal in green spaces in Baia Mare, both as an individual plant and in association with other species.
