Sourwood - 3 Gal.

$72.99

Oxydendrum arboreum

It's a crime how underused this American Beauties tree is considering how rewarding, how attractive, and how easy to grow it is. It's always an eye-opener to see a mature specimen with its narrow form, deep green, peach-like foliage, its outstanding bloom, and its riveting fall color. Sourwood's clean foliage is a cooling presence in the landscape and great protection for your landscape's birds. It also is the perfect background for its sprays of small, white, lily of the valley-like flowers that are borne on long, terminal, drooping strings in July and August. These slightly fragrant flowers are a magnet for native insects and butterflies and stand out as one of the few trees with a considerable summer bloom. Sourwood follows up its summer show with an incredible display of fall color with a searing burst of deep crimson foliage. Sourwood thrives in full sun or partial shade is nearly pest free, and is ready to make your landscape a better place for you and your garden critters!
