My husband ordered these trees, on line from a nursery, after we saw one on a trip to Pennsylvania to visit the kids. We must have just hit it at the right time because they only flower right after the the Dogwood flowers have faded, and only for about two weeks, if the weather conditions are right.
When we received them, there are ten, they were only about twelve inches tall. The cataloge says they grow about 10 feet tall by 10 feet wide. Ours have grown all different sizes, two are very small but full of blossoms this year.
In the fall the leaves turn a bright yellow. The female trees grow clusters of dark blue, grape like fruit, which is eaten by birds.
I think that a company should make a perfume from them. It would make a great fragrance, not too heavy, not too sweet.
I just checked out the TIME LIFE Encyclopedia Of Gardening for Trees. It stated that these trees grow up to 12 to 15 feet in about 10 years. It also states that it evenually can become 25 to 30 feet tall. That's not what we originally read when we ordered them.
Have a great day. Hope you enjoyed learning about our trees.
