They are commonly found in swamps, sloughs, swales, and other depression areas where the growing chances of many plants are less. The dark ebony bark is a deciduous plant. They are stout and tall, up to 30 - 60 feet at maturity.

The blooming seasons of the flowers are different according to land. In Northern areas, they bloom during June, while February is the blooming month for the Southern regions.
