    the trees were great ,they looked like they will grow niceley. The only problem that i could see is that the USPS takes a long time to deliver the trees , I received the trees on 3/24/2017, over a week after being shipped, maybe the other carriers would be faster. Thanks

    I was happy to get my sourwood trees but they were not fixed to the interior of the shipping box so most of the tips were broken.but happy to get them nonetheless!

Sourwood Tree Seedlings Produce Trees up to 30 Feet Tall

Sourwood tree seedlings are native to the Southeastern United States. They are hardy in growing zones 5 through 9, and most domesticated versions can grow up to 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide. Under ideal conditions, they may grow as much as 13 to 24 inches per year. Sourwood tree seedlings prefer areas of full sun for at least six hours per day and soil that’s acidic and well-drained. As mature trees, they produce fragrant white blooms in summer and ornamental seed pods in winter.

Plant sourwood tree seedlings in damp soil, rich with composted material, and water them often. These trees are mostly intolerant to drought and require ideal conditions to reach their full splendor. The leaves of a mature sourwood tree turn bright crimson and red in autumn. Later, ornamental seedpods appear that decorate the sourwood tree throughout winter.

Sourwood Tree Seedlings Attract Honeybees

Sourwood trees are often called sorrel trees, but they go by other names as well, including lily-of-the-valley tree, sour gum, and arrow wood tree. The leaves of these trees are waxy green with an elongated shape. They can be chewed to alleviate the symptoms of dry mouth, but should not be swallowed. This tree gets its name from the sour taste of its leaves.

From June through July, white blooms appear on mature sourwood trees. They’re bell-shaped in appearance and highly fragrant. As the blooms fade, and summer becomes fall, blossoms drop away, and leaves turn from green to a brilliant red, purple, or yellow — with all colors often featured on a single tree. As they mature, sourwood tree seedlings attract honeybees which produce delicious sourwood honey.

Sourwood Tree Seedlings May Live for 200 Years

When planted in a premium location and under ideal growing conditions, sourwood tree seedlings may have a lifespan of between 100 and 200 years. It’s a tree that will bring shade, color, and beauty to your yard for generations. If you add sourwood tree seedlings to your landscape, expect to see deer grazing among the leaves and twigs.

Most parts of the sourwood tree are edible, including the leaves that are chewed or made into tea, the bark that can be chewed to soothe mouth pain, and the sap used to treat fever. Early pioneers had many uses for this compact shade tree, including harvesting the popular sourwood nectar made by bees from this tree’s fragrant blossoms.
