Oxydendrum arboreum...a well grown speciman of Sourwood is among the most beautiful of North American trees

Unfortunately its a fairly difficult, or at least not easy, plant and most mature trees don't look great. Most of the seedlings are beautiful though. I noticed them this morning as I was checking the water on the Chinese plants.

We, Joan and Amy and I, collected this seed at Anniston Army Depot in Alabama last year. It will be great to get Sourwood from wild collected seed in the Native Plant Collection. I'm sure they'll grow well in Fern Valley.
