This is a native, semi-evergreen tree that is somewhat common as an understory tree in southern forests and woodlands. Because most grow in the shade of other trees, the canopy of the horsesugar is open and foliage is seldom dense. The foliage tends to have a wilted condition and there is usually a few old purple leaves persisting on a tree growing in the woods. The foliage has an artificial sweetning taste. Seeds eaten by birds.
