I'd certainly never heard of it, sounds great do you know how it deals with late spring frosts? The lastest we;ve had here is May 26th

Why not go for Gingkgo - they make splendid, lightly canopied, tough, 
drought-resistant street trees; and about as far from Rosaceae as you can get.
If you wanted a nice, exotic tree with a name not many will have heard of, 
and a decent rate of growth, and narrowish habit, try Poliothyrsis sinensis
Beautiful leaves, good spring & autumn colour, and flowering!
