The Sourwood Tree is a native tree that is a consistent favorite flowering tree here at Greenwood . We have many customers who plant this flowering tree in groves for honey productionOxydendrum arboretum.

In mid summer, the Sourwood Tree  drooping panicles of brilliant white flowers begin and persist into autumn. The vibrant and dependable fall color of Sourwood Trees often transitions from an orange red to brick red to flaming scarlet and displays the most vivid fall colors of any tree species.

The flowering Sourwood Tree can be difficult to transplant and perform best when purchased as container grown plants. Greenwood Nursery only sells container-grown plants in this species. Sourwood trees should be planted into acid, moist, and well-drained soil high in organic matter. It is best in light shade, particularly during the heat of summer. Perfect for accent, grouping, or specimen plantings.

Although sourwood can tolerate dry soils, it needs irrigation during drought periods, particularly when accompanied by high temperatures. In zones 8 and 9, sourwoods should be planted in shaded areas.  The Sourwood Tree is not a good selection for polluted or urban areas.
