    How tall is the tree now? They seem like their slow growers.

    It is doing great. I have two more a year younger than this one. It is a kind of plant and forget type of tree. I got it from lazy SS farm out of Virginia, in a small pot. Deers don't bother them at all. You can get them and plant them now. They come in a nice little pot already green. I tried the stick and root ones before this one and they didn't work out.

    It is about 5-6 feet high and wide spread. After this bloom I will prune the lower branches. Very low maintenance and deers don't look at them in my area.

    I am also trying to grow black gum (tupelo) and sourwood and they have been very difficult for me.

    They are nickname the Bee-bee tree. Bees are buzzing all over
    them when blooming.
    I have a tall one in my backyard now only 3 years old.
    My first time growing them from the little black seeds. They are very drought tolerant.
    Mine is 15' tall and growing taller everyday because it does not spread
    side way like yours. How tall do they get before finally stop growing taller?
    I like mine to be more bushier. So how do I do that?

    Don't mix foreign bees into a virgin hive. She might get balled 100% of the time! When will you ever learn, huh?

    Maybe is a West coast East coast thing. Mine are very short and compact, I do wish they are a little taller. This is a year younger than the blooming tree Evodia1.JPG

    and this is a picture of the the blooming tree evodia2.JPG

    Mine keep dying in their second or 3rd yr, they shoot up, late summer rains hit and the leaves wilt and die.

    Just a quick note: though I'm considering planting it myself, in some states Evodia is considered an invasive species.

    I bought mine as 1 old seedlings, If I plant any more, I will not dig my clay soil to plant them, it just makes a bowl of water for them to sit in. I will put a stone or plastic tree ring down and mound dirt up inside the ring and plant in it. I figure if the roots penetrate the clay on their own, they aren't going to be sitting in a bowl.

    My soil is clay too. It is rock hard when it is dry. I remember my 9hp troy bilt horse tiller bouncing and shooting forward everytime i tried to sink in the tines. I have a third tree that is no doing as good. The leaves are yellowish, but i think is because where i planted it is like concrete.
