                      About

                      A medium-sized tree, the Sourwood shines in the Summer and Fall. Its midsummer flowers appear like lilies-of-the-valley, are highly fragrant and contrast nicely against the green foliage. Then in the Fall, leaves turn intensely beautiful shades of brilliant crimson, purplish-red and sometimes yellow. This tree shines in landscaping as a specimen in a lawn, a garden feature, an ornamental addition to larger trees or a clump in a large, open space. And for honey lovers, the sourwood offers an additional bonus. Honey produced from the flowers of this tree is considered by many to be unmatched by clover, orange blossom, fireweed or any other honey. It has few pest or disease problems and is easily treated for the ones it does encounter.

                      Wildlife

                      Deer browse sourwood twigs and leaves. Gourmet honey is produced by the many bees that are attracted to the nectar-laden flowers.

                      Quirky Facts

                      A native tree of North America, the Sourwood is one of the few endemic trees that is not found in other continents unless planted, and has no related species. The name Sourwood is derived from the acrid taste of its leaves, but tea made from these leaves is widely used by mountain climbers as a thirst-quencher. Pioneers used the sap as one ingredient in a concoction used for treating fevers, the bark for chewing to soothe mouth pains, and leaf tea for treating diarrhea, indigestion and dysentery. But the best known by-product of the Sourwood tree is the hard-to-find and extremely delicious honey produced from the fragrant blossoms by honeybees.

                      Wonderful service

                      Thank you so much! The tree survived it's first winter and is doing well. So happy to have this living memorial to our beloved Gabe. We are getting ready to order another tree for Cooper, who passed in September.

                      Remembering Owen

                      We lost our 7-year-old Yellow Lab, Owen, in June 2018 after a brief series of unexpected medical issues. Owen had been abused the first 8 months of his life before he joined our family and despite that rough beginning, grew into a loving, sweet, funny dog. He loved the outdoors, playing fetch, going for walks. The Living Urn gave us a beautiful and unique way to remember this incredible dog who meant so much to our family. Owen's ashes were buried beneath a Prairie Fire Crabapple tree in view of the bedroom window where he would sit when the weather was bad and he couldn't be outside. The Living Urn ordering process was quick and easy, and the directions for use were clear and simple. We purchased a tree locally to ensure it would grow in our zone and when we had questions about the tree requirements, the Living Urn staff were very helpful. If you're looking for a living tribute for your loved one, the Living Urn is an excellent option.
