Sourwood Tree Seedlings Description

Sourwood Tree Seedlings, Oxydendrum Arboreum, is an Incredible Ornamental Shade Tree

Sourwood Tree Seedlings, referred to as the Sorrel Tree, are an incredible ornamental shade tree and have lived for two hundred years. This tree will group up to 24 inches annually until it reaches roughly thirty feet in height with a spread of twenty feet. Sourwood Tree Seedlings require little care and prefer moist and well-drained soil.

The leaves have an elliptical shape and, during the summer, are lush and deep green. This tree is highly prized, and creamy white, bell-shaped flowers bloom every summer. The blossoms grow in lovely clusters four to ten inches long. Fruit follows this with an oblong shape. The fruit is not edible, but the colors are beautiful. Bees adore this tree due to the extra sweetness of the honey produced and will flutter sweetly in the foliage. During the autumn, Sourwood Tree Seedlings are breathtaking. The leaves turn a gorgeous shade of orange and add beauty and grace to any yard.

Sourwood Tree Seedlings, Oxydendrum Arboreum, is Deer Tolerant and Produces a Brilliant Fall Color Show 

Sourwood Tree Seedlings or better known as Oxydendron Arboretum. Hardy in planting zones 4-9. The growth rate is 2-3 feet each year. Plant in full sun to partial shade and dry or moist soil, but ensure it is well-drained. This tree is planted in groves for honey production; sourwood honey is delicious.

This low-maintenance tree will bloom from June to July. This tree has a showy and fragrant bloom that is white. However, it has a brilliant fall color show. The magnificent red color and slender white drooping blossoms make this tree beautiful. The tree is intolerant of drought and urban pollution. The name of the tree comes from the sour-tasting leaves this tree produces. It is also deer tolerant and will bring lots of wildlife to your landscape.
