Majestic, magnificent, fiery!

The national emblem of Tennessee, sourwood is a tree with majestic foliage, magnified in autumn by its fiery colours. In the summer, it is covered with a myriad of white, lily-scented flowers that allow bees to produce an extremely aromatic honey. In traditional medicine, the young leaves are prized for their refreshing, diuretic properties.
