Sourwood

Oxydendron arboreum
This is an under story tree, native to the southern Appalachian Mountains. The cream-colored, drooping summer flowers are unique to this sole member of its genus. But the brilliant red fall color is outstanding! And reliable, showing off every fall with a display unsurpassed by any of our native small trees. Also of interest is the bark which has a corky texture, somewhat similar to the Black Tupelo but more pronounced. This tree requires well drained, acid soils. 15-30' high and 10-12' wide.
