Sourwood Tree Foliage

Sourwood Tree Foliage grow on Oxydendrum arboretum trees. A native of the southeastern region of North America, this deciduous plant produces spectacular autumn foliage! Green in the springtime and during the summer, the leaves transform with color as conditions grow colder in the fall. Leaves gradually adopt rich shades of yellow, red or dark purple.

Sourwood Tree Foliage 

(1) Leaf collectors particularly enjoy Sourwood trees because the foliage won't disappear until late in the season; Sourwood Trees continue offering a brilliant natural display for many weeks. (2) Sourwood tree leaves appear elongated and symmetrically oval. They grow on other nodes of a branch. Their exterior texture carries a slightly glossy sheen during warmer months. The edges of the leaves display extremely thin, delicate serrations along the edges. (2) The Sourwood Tree begins its color transformation earlier than many other deciduous trees. Usually found growing in hilly terrain, the tree starts showing reddish or orange tones in individual leaves as early as the end of August. By October, most Sourwoods showcase vibrant fall colors. (3) An individual Sourwood may display differently colored leaves in its branches. If you raise these trees to obtain beautiful fall foliage, many experts recommend planting them in a sunny location to achieve the most colorful results. Since many Sourwood groves retain their leaves well into autumn, leaf collectors can often harvest 3" to 8" long oblong leaf blades directly from the tree. Individual leaves measure between 1.5" and 3.5" in width. (4)

Sourwood branches don't contain thorns, so harvesting foliage does not involve a lot of risks.

The leaves may not break off easily, however. Exercising reasonable care not to damage the tree while collecting specimens for scrapbooking or art projects should enable you to return for many years to gather leaves from your favorite trees.
