Korean Evodia, (Bee Bee Tree), Evodia danielli, Tree Seeds

Fast Growth, Showy Fragrant Flowers and Leaves, Showy Fruits, Attracts Bees and Birds, Wildlife Food/Shelter, Shade Tree, Street Tree, Cold, and Drought Tolerant

Native to Korea and southwestern China, Korean Evodia (also commonly called Bee Bee Tree) is a deciduous tree with a rounded, spreading, umbrella-shaped habit. It grows 25 to 30 feet tall and as wide. Flowers are small, white and fragrant in flattened corymbs, 4 to 6 inches wide, blooming in July thru August. Flowers are loved by honey bees and bloom in abundance at a time when few other trees are in flower. Flowers are followed by reddish-purple seed pods that split open when ripe. Each pod contains two small, shiny black seeds. Pods remain on the tree from late August to November. Birds are attracted to the seed. Opposite, pinnately compound leaves to 18 inches long, each with 7 to 11 ovate glossy dark green leaflets 2 to 5 inches long, retain good color throughout the growing season. Fall color is generally absent, with the leaves typically dropping when green or yellowish-green. Smooth gray bark.

Leaf: Opposite, pinnately compound, 7 to 14 inches long, 7 to 11 ovate to oblong, entire leaflets (each up to 4 inches long), shiny dark green above, paler and initially hairy below.
Flower: Small, 1/4 inch, white with yellow anthers, in large (3 to 6 inches), branched clusters at the ends of twigs, fragrant, appearing in mid to late summer, quite abundant and conspicuous, very attractive to bees.
Fruit: Red to nearly black beaked capsules (1/4 inch) in large somewhat showy clusters, shiny black seeds inside, fruits ripen in late summer and persist through mid-winter.
Twig: Medium to stout, somewhat angled, large heart-shaped leaf scar, small light brown buds sit nearly on top of leaf scar.
Bark: Smooth gray at all ages, lenticels are more prominent on young stems, older bark may have very shallow vertical furrows, in general the bark is similar to beech.
Form: A medium sized tree up to 50 feet in height, broadly spreading crown on a short trunk.
