Nice little tree

Planted it right away. It's a decent 1-1.5 ft. and in time it should flourish. The leaves had some insect holes but should be ok. I like it.

Bee's delight.

I've bought five sourwood trees so far and they are all doing great. They all arrived in great condition, fully leaved out and ready to plant.

Sourwood Tree

I received my sourwood tree last week. Unfortunately, we have been buried under almost 3 feet of snow and frigid temps, so I "heeled it in" in a bucket filled with soil and put it in my unheated garage. I hope it will be okay like this until I can plant it outside. From the looks of our forecast, that won't be anytime soon. I'm keeping an eye on it to make sure it has enough moisture and that the pail of dirt does not freeze solid. Looks very healthy, so I'm hoping for the best. We had a sourwood that was split in two early last year in an ice storm, but I loved that tree. When it bloomed, it was absolutely covered with swallowtails of every kind. I'm hoping for the best with it's replacement

Nice single stemmed trunk, nicely staked - healthy and good size. Great price for the specimen received.
