Sourwood Tree

Alternative Views:

The Sourwood shade tree, Oxydendron arboreum, is an excellent, medium sized tree  for growing best in the garden or in parks, and the roots prefer growing in an acidic pH, well drained soil profile.  The Sour Wood tree is a native American tree that is found growing naturally from Pennsylvania and Illinois to Florida in the South, however, this tree can grow satisfactorily in further Northern locations.  The Sourwood tree can grow up to 50 feet tall, and the sweet sap is used to make a Sour Wood Jelly.  The flowers are heavily pollinated by bees that make the famous Sourwood Honey.  The branches are straight, dense and hard and were used by the American Indian Tribes to make arrow shafts.  The Sour Wood tree is most importantly regarded, because of its bright, deep-red, leaf display that occurs in the fall after the first freeze.

sourwood March 30, 2017
Reviewer: Paul from Connelly Springs, NC United States  
trees arrived in good condition.  Needed to plant quickly as roots were a little dry when I opened the packaging. Appreciate the pricing!  Hoping to get some sourwood honey in a few years!

Sourwood Surprise February 29, 2016
Reviewer: Martha J. from Brentwood, TN United States  
Since these trees start out smaller than some, Aaron's sent me two instead of one Sourwood tree. Nice deal, if you ask me. Both tiny saplings are now planted and I await spring to wake them up!
