Korean Sweetheart Tree
Mysteriously hard to find and a tree connoisseur’s treasure, the exquisite Korean Sweetheart Tree is named for its splendid heart-shaped vivid cherry red seed capsules, which appear in fall and later unveil round shiny black seeds. Unparalleled deciduous foliageóthick, lustrous, emerald green and lanceolateógarbs the slow growing horizontal branches that manifest stunning purplish mocha-colored bark with milky white stripes.
Introduced by the late JC Raulston after a 1985 expedition to the Korean Peninsula, this lovely small tree celebrates year-round intrigue, remaining undeterred by drought, pests or disease. Euscaphis japonica’s practical attributes abound: young buds are a Korean delicacy, while the fruit is cherished by birds and wildlife, the hewn wood crafts furniture, and various plant extracts yield soap, tannins and medicinal components. Large Band.
Size: 20' 0" high x 10' 0"–15' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.
Euscaphis japonica (T-0276)

As Summer draws to a close....
September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.
Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link
