Comments: This is an excellent native flowering tree in the upper Southeast U.S. It does not grow well in the hot, humid Coastal South. It does well as an understory tree to tall, high-bramched trees. It is particularly well adapted to the woodland garden and basically grows under the same conditions as dogwoods. It can have a single trunk and treelike or multi-trunked and grow more as a large spreading shrub.
