Bee Tree (Evodia Hupehensis) 20 seeds (#53)

They are attractive trees with deciduous glossy pinnate leaves. Develops a smooth gray bark that resembles that of a beech tree and grows to a height of 20 metres. The leaves resemble the foliage of an ash tree and are a glossy dark green in summer. In fall there is little color change and leaves tend to drop green to yellow-green. The tree is covered in late July and August with masses of large flat white to gray cluster of small white flowers, particularly valued when few other tree-size plants are flowering. It attracts large numbers of bees and is sought after by beekeepers as a source of late summer honey. The flowers produce clusters of seed that is present from late August through November. The seeds start as bright red capsules that when fully ripe open to expose shiny black buckshot seed as Autumn progresses. The small, red-to-black berries are popular with many birds.
This tree has lovely broad heads of creamy-white flowers in August. The flowers are freely produced and a specimen in full flower is a striking sight. If the tree is female there are red-brown berries in October. The tree is spreading, with large oblong leaves, curved up at their edges and held in pairs on dark pink stalks. The bark of a mature tree is smooth and grey.
An easily grown plant, preferring a good loamy soil. According to one report, this species is not cold-hardy in temperate zones, though a large healthy tree (planted in 1934) was seen growing at Kew in 1989.
Suitable for: light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils. Suitable pH: acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils. It can grow in semi-shade (light woodland) or no shade. It prefers moist soil. (info source: pfaf.org)
