Gardeners of the Southeast may know this ridgetop native for its drooping, longlasting sprays of fragrant flowers in June and July and its luminescent, soft red, maroon and yellow foliage in autumn. Add the pyramidal shape, drooping branches, chunky bark, reddish new wood and shimmery spring leaves, and you have an exquisite four-season tree. Thrives in acidic, richly organic soil.
