Arborist Thoughts

  • This small to medium-sized tree could make a great front yard specimen in a smaller landscape or be used well as a street tree where growing height is limited.

  • Korean evodia flowers late June – early August with attractive white flowers that provide quite a show when few other woody plants are in flower.  White flowers lead to attractive shiny red and black fruit.  Also, a great source of nectar for honeybees and other pollinators.

  • Korean evodia has no significant disease or insect problems and is adaptable to most soil types and soil pH.
