Sourwood

Sourwood is a beautiful deciduous tree that is pyramidal when grown in the open. It is native to the eastern United States on well-drained acid woodland soils. It is in the family with azaleas and blueberries and produces sprays of showy summer flowers consisting of little white bells from which bees produce the famous Sourwood Honey. The tree is also valued for its beautiful red fall color which colors early in the season. This tree is a handsome but slow growing ornamental suitable for well-drained acid soils that are not too dry. Avoid having grass or competing vegetation around tree and under canopy and provide mulch.
