Plant Description: One of the most beautiful flowering trees in our region. In addition to the flowering, there is fruit for wildlife, excellent fall color and bark that is likened to alligator skin. Many cultivars are available, but the original species is a great plant choice.

Foliage: Green
Fall Color: Red-Reddish purple

Fruit: Red drupe, attracts birds

Bark: Likened to alligator skin

Culture: Grows naturally as an understory tree, but will take sun if adequate moisture is provided. Acid soil is the preferred and may struggle in dry, poorly-drained soil. The plant is prone to some diseases and insects, but worth a try. If the plants struggle, look to the cultivars that have been breed for resistance to some of the more common problems.

Uses: Specimen, accent, massing, woodland plantings
