Oxydendrum






OXYDENDRUM ARBOREUM (_syn Andromeda arborea_).--Sorrel-tree. Eastern

United States, 1752. Unfortunately this species is not often found under

cultivation, being unsuitable generally for our climate. In some

instances, however, it has done well, a specimen in the Knap Hill

Nursery, Surrey, being 30 feet high, and with a dense rounded head. The

flowers are very beautiful, being of a waxy white, and produced

abundantly. It wants a free rich soil, and not too exposed site.
