Plant Species of the genus Oxydendrum

Information about this genus
Name: Oxydendrum
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: This plant is suitable for growing as a specimen or in open woodland. Grown in full sun, flowering is better and the autumn colors more intense. As do other members of the Rhododendron family, this species needs an acid soil that is moist but well-drained. Plants are slow growing and take time to become established. Propagate from seed in autumn or spring, or softwood cuttings in summer.
Description: The single species of deciduous shrub or small tree in this genus, native to North America, belongs to the same family as Rhododendron. It has a slender trunk, which is sometimes multi-stemmed, with rusty red fissured bark. In autumn, small white flowers appear and the leaves color vividly before falling.
