Details

Maybe we are partial to members of the Family Ericaceae, but many others agree that exceptional fall color is only one of the reasons to grow our native Oxydendrum. The hanging panicles of white lily-of-the-valley-like flowers add color and interest in midsummer and the fall display in vibrant shades of red is hard to beat. Like most rhododendron relatives, it prefers moist but well-drained soil and will tolerate some shade. The habit may vary from shrub-like to tree form. If you prefer one or the other, please let us know and we'll try to pick a plant with the desired shape.
