    Sourwood blooming and displaying its Autumn crimson at the same time. It is usually finished blooming by now around here, and it's about 2 months too early for this sort of color. X30.

    Awesome trees, very beautiful . . planted one in our back yard last summer then had an unusually hard winter and it died back quite a bit, you would laugh at it if I posted a shot of ours . . sure hope it comes back and establishes itself!

    Indeed. My forestry buddy at a nearby university told me Sourwood trees will do this if they are severely stressed, such as a dry site or excess chemical contaminants.
