    These are pair of trees on Harvard's Campus in Cambridge MA, 10/21 08.

    The most colorful things for miles around.

    I bought seeds from eBay.
    This tree does not exist in Romania and I hope to be the first to have something in the garden.
    It is a wonderful tree!
    I already put seeds to germinate!

    Remember it has to have acidic soil, ideally pH 5-6. Anything with a pH of 7 or over, it is unlikely to grow.

    Cool, moist well-drained soil, same as most other heath family plants. Good companion to rhododendrons and azaleas. Characteristic of bedrock outcroppings in at least part of its native range.

    I put the seeds to germinate and after 1 month only have 3 tiny plants of oxydendrum east.
    I am so sad!
    Is that supposed to be all peat substrate with pH 5.4 acid?
